Still Waving Goodbye to Parkinson's Disease

In this book, GAPS Co-Founder Stan Smith and his wife, Roz, share what they have learned about how to cope with PD. Roz gives insight and inspiration as she talks about how to approach being a care partner, a topic that is seldom discussed or written about. Stan is candid about his struggles on coming to grips with the disease. He shares what he has learned about the importance of exercise to battle against the disease progression and provides some easy to remember tips on how to deal with people's reactions to you, and how to approach life more positively as a person with Parkinson's.
