I am 63 and have been married for 42 years. We have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and six grandchildren. I am currently a PD children's book author (Carson & His Shaky Paws Grampa) and a speaker for patient perspective PD/ET/DBS advocacy. I enjoy writing, time with family and friends, church, singing, golf, tennis, camping, and other sports. I especially enjoy activities that involve meeting with and helping fellow patients and their caregivers as well as learning more about PD.
My book has opened doors for me over the last seven months or so. I have participated in a variety of presentations to support groups in the Denver and Phoenix areas. I have been interviewed by KOA radio, the Denver Post, and Fox TV in Phoenix. My wife and I plan to travel to CA July 19-21 for the PDF Clinical Research Learning Institute.
