More on "My Father, My Brother and Me"

Today, at my support group meeting, we saw the first 20 minutes of the documentary "My Father, My Brother and Me". A very nice young lady from our local PBS station, KQED, brought the film and introduced it to us. Since the film is not due to air until February 3rd, we were only allowed to see the first 20 minutes, but those 20 minutes were powerful. I actually found that I had tears rolling down my cheeks a couple of times. I think this film will help people understand what Parkinson's is really like and what it's really about; what it means for patients and their loved ones. This is what we need, my friends.... exposure, education, insight.

Hello, I just found your site and I find some similarities in that we are both about educating and encouraging others facing PD type diseases. I have a Parkinsonism Plus disease, but many Parkinson's symptoms. Thank you for what you are doing. Your topics are refreshing.

Want to swap links and follow each other's blogs?

Take care, Dan

I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
