Nine teams took part in the contest. Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod got 30 percent of all mentions. But the winners are Tim Hague Sr. and Tim Hague Jr. The older Hague has Parkinson’s and for him, it is important that other patients are active and pursue their goals. The message – never give up. Some 7 to 10 million people suffer from Parkinson’s disease worldwide. Therapeutic surgeries and medications are expensive. With progression, patients need help for all daily activities. They are not able to take care of themselves or live alone. Cognitive problems develop and freezing episodes occur. The disease and the accompanying symptoms foster isolation. Don’t give up, Hague said. Hope and dignity are all that people are left with. And the right to be happy and content to the extent possible.
