Susie Price, A Global Traveler
A friend and a Parkinson's care-giver herself, had sent an email across London, UK to many Parkinson's patients and their families about my idea for the Parkinson's disease project and within a day, I received an email from Susie. Susie said she is ready to talk about Parkinson's disease and to tell people about herself and the disease which has so much impacted her life. Susie has an amazing story and her life and work has taken her around the globe. That is why I am calling this amazing woman; A Global Traveler.
Susie: The Global Traveler
Today, April 11th, is the World Parkinson’s Day and I hope one day, this will be the day that we celebrate as a day when we found a cure for Parkinson’s disease. As John Lennon said, “May be I am a dreamer but I am not the only one”. But this belief, hope and optimism is not just a wishful thinking. Today more than ever before, we in the global scientific community are making huge strides fighting against diseases. As a neuroscientist not only I am optimistic, I am also persistent and diligent. Today I also recognize that achieving sometime impossible tasks can only be done through serious commitments and hard work. The neuroscientists I know are doing that every day. Their efforts in the USA, UK and the rest of the world require not just their commitment but also research funding and public education.
Hope by itself is not a strategy; but hope, love, caring, research, science, medicine, families, patients, people who care, and a world that knows more about Parkinson's disease and decides that we need to do more to find a cure for Parkinson's disease and other neurological diseases - all of this together is a strategy.
So, let’s work together.

We are in the process of starting a Parkinson's Disease Community Page. Please let us know if you are organizing an event, want to share some news, connect with other families or individuals and be part of our community. We would love to share it here.
Learning groups are great way of meeting others in the Parkinson community and learning more about the recent news.
On this page, we hope to share stories and introduce you to some of our friends and partners. Please visit often and also if you have a story, please send it to us. We would love to share your stories and news.
