After reading her inspiring book, I am amazed at her resiliency and tenacity to not only take care of herself, but to help others suffering with Parkinson’s disease through her exercise classes. She is truly a woman who turns her face to the sun to feel the warmth of each new day and the beauty around her.” -Susan
