Hi Mary, Thanks for your kind words and the link to the nutrition survey. It's an opportunity for those with PD to get their voices heard. Kate Kelsall
Hi PD Warrior, You are a real Super Trooper, fighting PD. And yes, sometimes the fight does require two masks. Onward, Kate

Hi Thonas, You have my permission to reprint an adapted version of my article, "12 Things You Shouldn't Say to Someone Who Has Parkinson's Disease" and translated into French as long as you credit the original article to me as the author. Warm regards, Kate Kelsall

Dear Kate and Tom, I’m so sorry for your loss. You gave Oreo a good, long and happy life and had the courage and love to let her go when her body couldn’t carry her anymore. My thoughts are with you. TM Oreo's Veterinarian

Hi Kim, WOW -- Messages such as yours keep me writing. Thank YOU so much. As you are aware, it is of utmost importance that the electrodes be placed in the correct location in the brain. Of equal importance, is that there be a competent, experienced programmer so that the patient can obtain maximum benefit of the DBS system. There seems to be a shortage of programmers with these attributes. Just an observation...patients who have ET have a much easier time getting programmed at the University of Colorado than the PD patients. I think it's because with ET, there is just one symptom to deal with. I hate to see you suffer. If you would like to continue this conversation by email, I would be happy to do so. We can discuss options available. After going through all of this, you deserve to function at the highest level possible. Please stay in touch. Warm regards, Kate Kelsall
