About the Author:

Pat is one of seven children born, raised and educated in Atlanta, Georgia. She attended Archer High School, Spelman College and Atlanta University (AU). She graduated from AU with a MBA in finance.

Pat was the only child of seven children that inherited ataxia from her father. Through self discovery of their past, her father has become an imspiration to her.

Patricia's attitude of courage and persistence are an out growth of two beliefs shared by her mother "Things could be worst" and a Bible verse, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." -Philippians 4:3

Through Broward County Florida Ataxia support group that she started and is currently the President, she is able to help other ataxians, their family and friends cope with the disease. She publishes Speak Out, (a newsletter) designed to be a forum to ataxian to share their experiences with others. As an AOL member, she host an ataxia chat session in the "LIFE" category every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM EST.

Pat strongly belives that we have to educate the general public about ataxia one person at a time.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The beginning of my illness occurred in 1977, at the age of
twenty-five, in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Around that time I
experienced several incidents that I thought were strange, but
dismissed them as episodes of clumsiness. I discuss some of those
incidents in Chapter Three, "My Young Adult Experiences."
