Ken’s journey with Parkinson’s began three years ago when his wife Kat stopped working due to her Parkinson’s diagnosis. Kat was the primary income provider in their family; however, when she could no longer work, they had to resize their current lifestyle and their future expectations. To help Ken and Kat with this new journey, they started a Young Onset Parkinson’s social group, and Ken is actively building a support network of Young Onset Parkinson’s care partners to help learn about and navigate this “new normal.”
Ken believes that living well with Parkinson’s means staying positive and supportive within yourself and with your partner. It means using this as an opportunity to experience the joys and grace of each day’s victories, no matter how large or small they may be.
