“I kind of got in touch with myself going through what I'm going through. It gave me a different outlook on life. In fact, I appreciate things that I used to take for granted.”

“I think when people first diagnosed, you need to be very in tune to opening yourself up and just sharing it up front. People are so happy to help, and I just can't believe the support I’ve received.”
Millie and Dr. Gus Alva
“It was very painful for me to see what was happening to a man that I remember was very strong … But just gathering with other Hispanics in our community, he's able to see that he's not alone in this journey. He's not the only one dealing with this disease.”
Harrel and Diana
“I know for you it’s painful, but you inspire me. That’s why we just need to keep sharing over and over. It’s a calling because we have to educate so many people about a disease where more and more people are going to be diagnosed.”
Kelly and Julie
“It’s ever changing. No one can ever expect what each day may bring because each day is different. Parkinson's has become our life for the last six, seven years. I'm just trying to find who I am outside of a caregiver for Cedric.”

"I don’t want Parkinson’s. But it actually taught me that there's so much more I can do to make my life complete. And it's given me a new lease on life."
