Essay:

For me, being able to create gives me a sense of purpose, and release. I enjoy utilizing media to get a message across that there IS life with PD, and that we ARE people first.

I believe that we must encourage all those with PD to remember and find and cultivate their talents in spite of the Parkinson's. Use it as therapy! Creativity leads to so many wonderful things within our brains,it is only natural it should be so important for those of us with a neurodegenerative illness to find ways to increase the time spent on creative endeavors.
