Great podcast!

I am so thankful to have found this podcast! I drive anywhere from 400 to 800 miles every week and I’m thrilled to have found something that is more applicable to my current condition. I was diagnosed with YOPD in 2014 at the age of 36. Thanks for putting this together and keep going! #Grit #KeepMoving #NeverGiveUp

Thank you!

I was just diagnosed with Parkinson’s at age 48 and I feel like someone just read my mind after listening to this podcast. I am a die hard athlete and 2.5 years ago I started having issues and it took this long to get a diagnosis . I am so thankful for the woman who shared her story in this podcast- she has validated my feelings and fears. I have only recently been thrown this curveball and haven’t had a chance to digest it much with COVID-19 hitting. Thankfully, I now have time to listen to podcasts like this for answers and understanding.
