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

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: urgentspellcast@gmail.com

Hi Viewers,
My husband was diagnosed of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) 2 years ago at Patton State Hospital California, the doctor told us there was no known cure for the disease, we were given medications to help the symptoms. After 1 year and 2 months, the symptoms has got worse and we had to look for an alternative treatment since the doctors were not helping. I read an article online last 2 month about Dr. Yare herbal healing home in Africa who prepare and sell herbal medicines to cure all kind of disease including ALS/MND, I contacted the herbal Doctor through his email and purchased the ALS herbal remedy, we received the herbal remedy within 3 days and my husband immediately commenced usage, He drank the ALS herbal Tonic Doc. Yare prepared for him. OMG!! after 1 week of usage some of the symptoms like clumsiness and his very slurred speech had stopped, he continue usage the 4th week he'd got a lot better that even the doctors could not believe it. It totally cured him and we have told so many people about it. Now my husband can work a distance freely without any assistant. With doc. Yare, you can get that incurable disease cured. its all thanks to God and also to you Doc. Yare, for your continued help, and wonderful knowledge of God's life-saving herbs.You are truly a Godsent!! If you have or know anyone still suffering from ALS/MND/MSA/FSHD/MS or any other disease, you can contact him on: dryareherbalcurehome@gmail.com Call or Whatsup: +2348148010628, +2348164653711.
