In 1983, John Ball was almost at a midpoint in his life—a time to assess the first half before he carried on with the second. It was then that he had to deal with the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, just before he turned forty years old. In this memoir, Ball narrates his story of how he has lived with Parkinson’s disease and how he has worked to create a better life for others struggling with difficult diagnoses and debilitating diseases.
Living Well, Running Hard offers insight into Ball’s growth from isolation into a leadership role in the Parkinson’s community. His long struggle to understand the disease provides an in-depth look at the complexities of Parkinson’s. Ball tells how his transition was triggered by a childhood desire to run a marathon and how his love of running, his desire to take action, and his willingness to take on challenges come together in the formation of Team Parkinson. In spite of his diagnosis, Ball has continued to run the Los Angeles Marathon each of the last fifteen years.
Intimate and inspiring, Living Well, Running Hard communicates one man’s story of perseverance and triumph.
