The Xlibris release, Calvin’s Journey with Parkinson’s, chronicles Calvin Broadhead’s life and his efforts to survive Parkinson’s disease. Author Bonnie McCollough Broadhead brings full attention to her husband’s story and the degenerative disease that has beset Calvin and people in their twilight years.

Parkinson’s disease impairs a person’s motor skills, speech and other motor functions due to the degeneration of the central nervous system. The manifestation of this disease can range from movement disorders to high-level cognitive dysfunction to subtle language problems. It is these symptoms and other experiences that Bonnie details in this self-published book.

Calvin’s Journey with Parkinson’s also highlight’s the title character’s strength and courage throughout his experience of failing health. It is the Bonnie’s intention to bring wisdom pertaining to Parkinson’s disease, so others who suffer the illness can learn from similar circumstances that Calvin went through.

Calvin’s Journey with Parkinson’s is a helpful resource for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and people who have loved ones who suffer from the illness.

Note: Watch it in High Quality! Might take a bit longer to load but it’s worth it. Kris’ secretary has given in to the Twilight fandom. Seeing that Kris, herself, likes vampire stories, the secretary has gone out of her way to buy the book for her. This is an introduction to a series of “Twilight Rants” that I’m going to work on. The subtle sparkle reference is in preparation to the next video. Uninteresting notes: +I actually bought the book out of curiosity in Dec. 2007 but had finished only 20% of it and had not read it since then. Only when I heard of the hubbub that I looked at the book again recently, and realized why I might have stopped reading it. +The book I read in the beginning was “The Bloody Chamber” by Angela Carter +I was actually using glitter…glitter lotion to be exact and I had that bottle since 7th grade. The webcam, unfortunately, had a problem catching it. +The voice of Edward is a homage to another infamous fic.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
