Celebrating everyday wins with PD – big and small
For both patients and researchers, beating Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a long-term war rather than a short-term battle. The key to keeping hope alive lies in achieving daily victories.
Nan Little, a PD patient for 12 years, knows this from personal experience.
The 74-year-old Washington resident has dealt with muscle weakness, cognitive decline and other major health issues from PD. Yet her diagnosis also inspired her to write a book, climb mountains, bike across Iowa, and give a speech at an international conference.
