"I AM"- are the two most powerful words in the dictionary because the ending determines your destiny….so join me in my fight against PD to make sure that everyone who suffers from this chronic progressive degenerative disease can develop the courage to shout to the wind- I AM Fierce and Courageous ….

Wear sunscreen & enjoy your journey with Parkinson’s

If I could offer your only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it! ~Mary Schmich

beach_chair_dl  My  mission is to encourage, support, and impart a bit of knowledge with others who like me might be trying to make the most out of life with PD.  The benefits of sunscreen are  infallible yet my advice to you comes from my personal experience of years in dealing with Parkinson’s disease as a Parkinsons specialist, caregiver, patient and three time melanoma survivor. The advice in these blogs by no means is intended to take the place of your relationship with your own physician rather help fill in the gaps for a more happy, healthy, and succesful journey with PD.

My recently published book addressing the issues of women with Parkinson’s can serve as a guide…the Spanish book on similar topics coming out soon….plus a new one on “Parkinson’s journey..” should both be out next year

or follow my blog

This will be new book cover for Spanish “El Parkinson’s y Yo!”11209705_898604740197253_5457366517082815686_n

  1. I recently read your book and I want to thank you. I’m 35 was diagnosed at 33 and reading your book has been very helpful I could see myself in every chapter. I’m a professional I’m a nurse and had to leave bedside because of PD. PD has taken a lot from me and I refuse to surrender to it after all I’m also a Parkinson’s diva!! Great job Dr. De Leon

    1. Yilliam…I am truly sorry that you too have to experience this illness first hand- but I hope you realize by now that you are not alone are loved and have a whole host of DIVAS! behind you! I would love to talk – I am trying to collect data on health professionals like us who appear to be at higher risk of PD maybe we can begin to find a common link that might unveil new insight. thank you again for reading my book! Stay strong and courageous for God our Lord will be with you Wherever you go! Joshua 1:9
