Talking about hope

“I supposed that you all in this room know nearly one in the million people today in US living with Parkinson’s. But it’s hard to appreciate what living with Parkinson’s actually means until that one in the million turns out to be someone you love. For me it’s my father.”

Willie Geist
Co-anchor of NBC News’ “Today” and Co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

He talks about his dad, Bill Geist, the “CBS Sunday Morning” correspondent. For me that one in the million turns out to be my aunt. She has been struggling for seven years, until now.
What is Parkinson’s Disease actually? What is the cause(s)? What is the cure? And who wants to know the cure more than the patient?
