Changing the World, One Life at a Time

Ann Hanley was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at the age of 49. Parkinson's is a degenerative disease that damages and eventually destroys neurons in the brain, causing muscle rigidity and tremors, difficulty moving, unstable posture and ultimately death. Receiving the diagnosis wasn't easy, but instead of letting fear get her down, she focused her energy on lifting other Parkinson's patients up.
