About this title:

Synopsis: More than 1,000,000 people in the United States are living, struggling, and dying with Parkinson's Disease - 50,000 more are diagnosed in this country every year. A personal journal of one family's struggle with the progression of Parkinson's Disease - One can understand the medicine and the treatment for this devasting disease, but nothing prepares one for living & dying with Parkinson's; this journal takes the reader by the hand as this disease takes control of one man's life.

About the Author: Jane Awalt, married to Robert Awalt for 60 years, shares her personal journal of living and dying with her husband's disease as a gift to others, helping us understand the stages and progression of this devasting illness. Bob's story unfolds slowly like the disease, often taking startling turns and twists. The author was a stay-at-home mom, taking care of two children. She volunteered at schools, libraries, and historical societies. She volunteered at the DAR library in Washington, DC, as a docent for many years and assisted the genealogists in verifying supplemental papers for their members. She and her husband worked at the Baltimore County Historical Society for eight years assisting patrons with genealogy research. She and her husband indexed five ledgers from the old St. James Church in Baltimore for the Catholic Archives. She also completed three years of applications for membership in the patriotic organization Daughters of Colonial Wars. She has documented thirty lines of her ancestors arriving in Virginia before 1700.
