About this product
- DescriptionIt was just about three weeks after his 45th birthday in 2000 when Bill Schmalfeldt was diagsed with Parkinson's disease. In 2007 while working at a federal agency as a writer and podcaster, telling other people about the importance of clinical trials, Bill heard about and volunteered for an experimental brain surgery to determine whether or t deep brain stimulation could be done on patients in the earlier stages of the disease. This is the story of Bill's Parkinson's Decade from being diagsed in 2000, to having the surgery in 2007, through today. The story is told in a humorous, satirical, almost jovial style considering the fact that Bill's motor skills and cognition continue to degenerate. Bill has promised to donate 100 percent of the author's proceeds from the sale of this book to the National Parkinson Foundation and the Charles DBS Research Fund at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. You can read Bill's blog at http: //parkinsondiary.com.
