New Light On Parkinson’s! By Dr. De Leon


“We are ALL a little Broken….

last time I checked Broken crayons still color the same.” Trent Shelton

I believe that we are all unique like the colors of my favorite coloring box of 152 Crayola Crayons; and even though Parkinson’s may strike each and everyone one of us differently we all share the same outer exterior like the rainbow of colors in the same crayon box! But let’s not forget that within that box are endless possibilities ….

all it requires is a bit of imagination.

By shedding light on Parkinson’s features motor and non-motor, I am hopping to bring a change in the way we are all perceived and treated.  Not as Broken ….

Rather as people who see, feel, think, smell, perceive, do, believe and experience things differently. Yet, no less useful, creative, bright, and uniquely gifted and colorful individuals striving to make our own mark in the world as any other.

As Gandhi would so eloquently quip,”Let us be the change we like to see in the world!”

Don’t be afraid to bend a little or brake a little with PD, you might just surprise yourself as I have …

So go ahead start living your life to the fullest and don’t be afraid to color outside the lines…
