Id like to say I'm a big fan of the back to the future I couldn't picture anyone else act like Marty McFly in the movies but Michael J Fox. Even though I got no money to donate I still support Parkinson's it's a really challenging disease

Tour de Fox concluded on September 12, having raised $1.87 million for Parkinson’s research. Michael J. Fox had this to say about this summer’s 14,000-mile fundraising feat: “Sam may be slightly nuts to have taken this on, but thanks to the thousands who came out to support his extreme undertaking this summer, we’re reminded that working together not only helps us share our strength and hope — it also brings us tangibly closer to the cure.”

Connect with others via social media. The people that have encouraged me most in this journey are those I have met via Twitter who have loved ones with the disease, or they have the disease.

Most of my connections are through the internet.  Locally most people are scared of me.  You have to go with whatever works for you.

The decision to participate in clinical trials can be a complex and personal one. Longtime friends Kirk and Nan share their opposing views on the topic. http://bit.ly/1MwElIL

The North Korean Solution from a military veteran (A Solution Once and for All)

I look forward to hearing from you   in regards to this idea that I would like to submit to you. 

This idea/movie plotline/geopolitical strategy satisfies 7 major objectives:

 Unifies South and North Korea
 Keeps the North Korean populace from fleeing to China
 Feeds millions of starving people (including their military) – quickly winning the hearts and minds of the North Koreans
 Eliminates an American/World enemy
 Shows the world the best ideas come out of America
 Eliminates the need to have American troops in South Korea any longer (saving the US tax payer tens of millions dollars every month)
 Could be a blockbuster movie with revenues in the $200 to $500 million range
This idea has been secured by the Writer's Guild and the Library of Congress.

I am former QM3 (SW) Roussey who exited honorably from the US Navy. I have the basic movie plotline typed up and can submit it to you, via PDF attachment. I just need 30 minutes of your time for a possible $400,000,000 idea. 

I have been to the DMZ and used to live in South Korea as well (just a side note). My phone number is 530-392-4889 and my email address is benjamin@infinista.com if you want to contact me and inquire about this idea that I can submit to you that has both foreign policy and blockbuster movie implications. 

Thank you for your time.

A common misconception outside the Parkinson's community is that tremor is the disease's only symptom. Test your knowledge, and see how your friends do, too. http://bit.ly/1MCl7Cr

Drugs in development that go after Alzheimer’s processes, rather than proteins, may have potential to treat Parkinson’s disease, as well. http://bit.ly/1VNuDFP
