Description - Living with Parkinson's by Gabriella Rogers
It is estimated that four to six million people around the world suffer from Parkinson's disease; around 80,000 of these are in Australia. After Alzheimer's, Parkinson's is the most common neurodegenerative disease and the number of people with Parkinson's disease in 15 of the world's largest nations will double over the next generation. And because the median time from onset to death is 12.2 years, people with Parkinson's live with the disease for a relatively long time compared with diseases such as cancer. Public awareness and understanding of Parkinson's Disease among the general community is needed. This book will address this with an easy-to-read, positive text covering the medical aspects of Parkinson's as well as incorporating the stories of sufferers, their families and carers. It is endorsed by Parkinson's Australia, bringing together a formal medical perspective with a more personal one, to provide a comprehensive look at the disease from all angles.
