A passion for lights illuminates the importance of staying involved.
People with Parkinson's fight each and every day. They fight to move. They fight to rest. They fight to walk. They fight to talk. Things you take for granted come with great difficulty to a person with Parkinson's. Show creator Mike Justak, now in his 16th year with the progressive disorder, once again uses his show to illustrate life with Parkinson's.
