From Patrick's wife Cathy

Patrick was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease on July 14 of this year. At first he felt relief, finding out that his deep depression, muscular weakness and stiffness, and slight tremor were not "all in his head." Over this past summer and early fall, we have sought answers about his future. He will see a specialist in Asheville this month, and in March he will see a team of doctors at one of the National Parkinson's Association Centers for Excellence through Duke Hospital. Our biggest worry is maintaining our expensive secondary health insurance policy. If we did not have it, we'd be thousands in debt from Pat's heart stent surgery in late 2015. We live on fixed income; more than 30% of it goes to insurance and out-of-pocket drug deductibles. In the ten years we have been retired, we have depended on music-related income to fill in the gap between income and expense. That income is not possible now. We need the gift of time to make sense of the changes that Parkinson's has brought to our lives, without fear of losing insurance and the resulting financial stress. For now, Parkinson's related drug therapies are down the road. Pat says he would like to regain the strength in his fingers to play music again. Only time will tell if medicine and therapies will help him achieve that goal.
