My Book

Our mission is reaching more and more people everyday. Follow us through this journey as our cause is heard, read, and watched.

My new book titled IN MEMORY OF MY MOTHER SHARON: A SON’S JOURNEY FROM PARKINSON’S DISEASE CAREGIVER TO ADVOCATE is now available at https://a.co/d/gqUwKJX

In Kindle and Paperback versions.

 

The book is, first, a memoir of and praise for my mother, Sharon Riff Ackerman, who was my best friend through both our lives until she passed on 1/1/2020. The book is also a heartfelt and often heart-wrenching recollection, and my reactions, of the beginnings of her Parkinson’s disease symptoms to our journey together.

I wrote this book with several other purposes in mind. First is to help those who are diagnosed and living with Parkinson’s, caregivers, family members, and friends confront the disease. Second is to comfort and assure them that their sometimes conflicting, often puzzling, and frustrated feelings are normal. Third is to provide a guide and offer practical suggestions and resources for dealing with PD. And finally, and possibly most important, my purpose is to raise awareness of PD and vigorously support the search for a cure.
