Spotlight on Parkinson’s Disease

We have two authors with the Parkinson’s (and several caretakers who have experience with the disease) on our team, and are proud to contribute to increasing #parkinsonsawareness with the following features.

Our second feature for this month includes a reprinting of a short story by the late Alva Harris, with the blessing of his wife and caretaker Donna Harris, called Gray Ghost: My Last Boat. It is available only on eBook and costs just 99 cents. Easy to read and share.  You’ll be happy (through tears) that you did. These are things we all should understand.
