We discuss some of the physical, cognitive, and emotional aspects that being diagnosed and living with Parkison’s has had on his and his family’s life. Larry’s journey has had a profound transformation on how he lives his life. Running, drumming, and meditation are just a few of the things that have had an incredibly positive and healing effect on his life. Larry’s battle exemplifies the fact that through facing life’s challenges head on and with a positive attitude, it is possible to find meaning and happiness in life.
