Larry: My name is Larry. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1996.

Joyce: He was diagnosed because he wasn’t moving one arm. That was the beginning of Parkinson’s. Normally everybody knows Parkinson’s in regards to the shakiness. In Larry’s case, he…cannot move. He becomes almost paralyzed.

Larry: I remember the doctor saying, “It’s gonna affect your lifestyle,” but I didn’t believe it at the time. Sometimes I’ll try to open a door or something, and I’ll just freeze up and can’t move.

Joyce: He can’t move. He just gets to a point that he’s stuck.

“I went online to The Assistance Fund, and we were able to still have a home. Because otherwise we wouldn’t have.”

Joyce: Whenever there was a new medication, I went online to The Assistance Fund, and we were able to still have a home. Because otherwise we wouldn’t have. We’re able to still enjoy it, certain things in life, because of them. Nobody has given as much as The Assistance Fund does. Thank you, Assistance Fund.

Joyce: We met with a group of friends, and we decided to get married. We had one child. She taught us how to live and be happy! My two granddaughters are what we live for. Friends and family mean a lot to us.

Joyce: Some days are very good. Other days, so on and so forth, but live every day to the fullest. And I have to say, Larry and I are doing that…life is still good, when you have it. With Larry, it’s good. It really is.
