    Thanks for the book review, I’m adding this to my list. My father has Parkinson’s and my grandmother died as a result of Parkinson’s, so I completely understand your fear and wonder if you or who will be next. A genetic test isn’t an option for me, but like you I am not sure if I would want to be tested.

    I’m glad to hear that for your family the disease has been stopped.

      I’m sorry to hear about your father and grandmother. Is there no genetic test for Parkinson’s? Or you choose not to?

      1. Lisa

        The genetic testing shows if you have a mutation that may or may not cause Parkinson’s. Per the Michael J. Fox foundation website, only 10 percent of Parkinson’s cases have been linked to a genetic cause.
