Parkinson Disease….Some Help Is Available

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 05-03-2019


I am so please to have Otis Vaughn guest write for me again here at Hesterbooks.com. We have been best friends since high school back in Reform, Alabama….No, we did not attend a reform school but we did attend Pickens County High School in Reform, Al…..A few years ago Otis became aware that he had Parkinson’s, news that scared him and his friends. Talking to Otis today you would never know that…..Well, now he still does talk slow, but it’s a “Alabama slow” and not “Parkinson’s slow”. We published the Part 1 of two parts first, so remember to scroll on down and read part one and then come back to Part 2.

How wonderful to read in Part 2, Otis’s own words when he says, “….most people do not know I have PD. I live and enjoy a completely normal life……..and “I give Rock Steady Boxing the credit for providing the means for me to live an ordinary life.” What wonderful words to hear.

I am hoping that this message is spread on the world wide web so that others may benefit from Rock Steady Boxing. Many thanks to Carolyn Rhodes, Otis Vaughn and Rock Steady Boxing for allowing me to publish this article.
