Muhammad Ali and His Caregiver

No matter what the disease, an important part of surviving daily is the caregiver.

You hear about the suffering of the person who is ill but you rarely hear about what happens to the one who lives with them and what they go through.

In an article from the June issue of AARP BULLETIN, they take an in depth look at Muhammad Ali and his wife-caregiver Lonnie, and what their life looks like in the day to day battle with Parkinson's Disease.

    Last June I hit the magic age of 60. Almost immediately I found myself not feeling as well as usual. Go figure, I mean, I am 60 years old, whether I want to admit it or not!! But then strange symptoms started to occur. A friend, who is a doctor, told me to get checked out....Voila...Parkinsons. That's what this is all about. Living every day with this. Personal info... I'm 60 divorced with 2 daughters in their early 20's live in the city...lakeview area...grew up in the north burbs. Lived in So. California for 13 years...may go back...I hear winters are warm there!! :-)
