Topic Blog from a former PWP Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

This blog is from Dr. Stevens, a gifted scientist, who passed away at the age of 34. He had PD, but they say he died of a heart issue. A photo competition was held in his honor, all the entries were apparently photos of brain cells in PD. Here are the winning entries:

You can read Dr. Stevens' blog, which is still up, here (warning, it is very hard reading, I had to quit reading so the kids wouldn't see my crying):

It is very insightful, and I am so touched by his honesty in sharing. I know my husband must feel many of the same things, but doesn't say them. I find the blog helpful to me, when I get frustrated or upset, as it helps me see that my feelings pale in comparison to what my husband deals with and feels on an hourly basis, all the time. He never gets a break.
