  1. I’d love to participate but I’m 64. Diagnosed at 54, after initial on-set at 51, i’ve Done very well by doing physical therapy. I live alone, grocery shop, drive, walk for exercise and teach. I do not use a wheelchair or any supports except a Philadelphia collar when I drive.

    Thank you for asking,
