Great to hear from you, brothers Jeff and Dion. I keep on trucking. I'm a prostate cancer survivor going on 15 years now. Was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease and Type II Diabetes in 2010. I turned the diabetes back by losing weight and improving my diet. After five years, my Dr. said I am pre-diabetic again. On the Parkinson's, my neurologist said i'm 95th percentile. Out of 20 PD sufferers, I'm doing better than 19 of them! My astronomy observing buddy is also a neurologist, and he said something similar. He said I'm doing as well walking as any 7 year PD patient he's ever seen. I'll take those findings any day, compared to the alternatives!
