Pat’s wife Cidney was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2010 at the age of 47 after a four-year journey to a diagnosis. Cidney came across the Davis Phinney Foundation as she was researching Parkinson’s and together she and Pat actively embraced the Davis Phinney Foundation’s philosophy of living well today with Parkinson’s. Pat notes the benefits living well has brought to each of them, saying: “It’s kept us both off the couch and has built an active lifestyle we both follow.”

A current teacher, Pat is also an avid cyclist who has participated in Ride the Rockies as part of the Davis Phinney Foundation’s Team DPF. He and Cidney work together with the Parkinson’s community in Las Vegas to spread the message that it is possible to live well today with Parkinson’s. “Our credibility is amplified as ambassadors,” Pat explains. “We are able to help real people with real issues of living with Parkinson’s.” He notes the difficulties that can come as a care partner, but says he remembers what everything is ultimately about. “I love my wife and will do whatever is needed to make the best life possible for her.”
