This is the story of a man, both husband and father, who takes his Parkinson's diagnosis in stride (albeit shuffly). With the help of music, humor, and charity, Alan begins to make a difference in the world. His challenge is Parkinson's, but substitute any other disease or hurdle and find that music, humor, and a positive attitude can help you through the day, even if it is just a little.

Author Biography

Brooklyn native, Alan Jackowitz grew up with the sound of rock and roll and adding machines. Struck with Parkinson's at age 50, his life was turned upside-down but he still kept his perspective and his wonderful sense of humor. As Alan says "People have called me heroic, and I've laughed or have been embarrassed. My life has facets that are far from heroic but I've lived my life with Parkinson's with humor, energy, music, attitude and pills and I know that if heroic is too strong a word, exemplary might suffice. If I can be an example to anyone else about how to live a life with PD I would be honored."
