Parkinson’s Disease and Me

Category: Store

Parkinson’s Disease and Me is an account of a woman diagnosed with young onset Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and her ability to mentally accept and deal with that diagnosis. The book describes how she progressed from hiding the diagnosis from her family, employer, and friends to becoming an advocate for finding a cure and developing better methods of treatment for people with PD. During this progression, Lightner details the difficulties and struggles she overcame while maintaining a positive attitude as she dealt with her employer, lawyers, and filing for long term disability claims. Hopefully readers will benefit from reading this book and become advocates for finding a cure for PD.
