Read a user-friendly, patient's explanation of the defining symptoms of these atypical Parkinsonism disorders and find out how this neuro-degenerative disease progressed in Dan's case. He writes a compelling and inspirational story of how he maintained his faith in God, while courageously facing life with a movement disorder.
