Meet Beat Parkinson's Today Founder

Michelle was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease at the age of forty.  Her diagnosis was devastating, but she quickly decided to help the cause by joining clinical trials, starting a support group for young people with Parkinson’s and eventually creating an exercise program called Beat Parkinson’s Today.
