Sharon Krischer was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in January 2009. About six years ago Sharon started writing her blog Twitchy Woman: My Adventures with Parkinson's Disease to fill a gap for information about living with Parkinson's Disease from the patient's viewpoint — for the benefit of those who were newly diagnosed. Her goal is to present living well with PD in a positive, sometimes humorous way. Sharon lives in Beverly Hills, CA with her husband, Joel. They have three daughters and four fabulous grandchildren.
