OKAY! Betty M. is two years symptom free. How inspiring is that! Two years ago at this time Betty M. said it was time to announce her recovery. On August 20, 2013, I posted, Fighting Parkinson’s, and Betty M. is symptom free. For the last two years, Betty has inspired us by periodically commenting on blog posts I have written.
CONGRATULATIONS, BETTY! Two years symptom free, cured of Parkinson’s. That is absolutely wonderful!!!
Here is some additional inspiration from Betty. Last year, she returned to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to be examined by her doctors. It had been 11 months since her full recovery, 11 months since she had done the Recipe, and a year since being seen by the neurologists.
I received an email from her the evening of the appointment with a Subject Line, “PD-free!” When I opened the email, the first thing Betty wrote was this, “It’s official! Two out of two Mayo Clinic/Rochester neurologists agree: Betty does not have Parkinson’s.” I was elated. Good for Betty. Good for the neurologists who did not take away her diagnosis when they found no Parkinson’s. Good for all of you who I knew would be hearing this story today!
I asked Betty if she could get a copy her medical record and give me permission to share the findings with all of you. She said of course, and provided me the medical records. At the Mayo Clinic, Betty was seen by two neurologists who first documented her history, beginning with, “This patient has had imbalance since 2006 when she began lurching to the left.” The neurologists put her through all of their tests and then documented the following conclusion:
“Neuro: I agree entirely with Dr. Scharf. There is no evidence of parkinsonism.”
That’s it! Betty received a clean bill of health regarding her Parkinson’s. Congratulations Betty.
So, my friend Betty, here we are, all of us inspired by you and your recovery. Thank you for not giving up on yourself, and thank you for sharing your life and your story so freely with all of us.
CONGRATULATIONS, BETTY!!! TWO YEARS SYMPTOM FREE FULL RECOVERY, CURED FROM PARKINSON’S!!!
