Essay:

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease three years ago. It started with a numbness in my left index finger and within a few months I had bilateral tremors and was freezing, unable to walk. I have improved since then, going from a wheeled walker to a cane and now I don't use anything. I took up woodworking 18 months ago, when my wife bought me a scroll saw and I've added a few other tools along the way. I don't let my disease get me down and live one day at a time, getting the most out of life. Finding the Grove City Area Parkinson's Support Group was a blessing and helps keep me in touch with what's happening in the Parkinson's Community. Thanks, I hope you enjoy my work. John Corbett
