My Father, My Brother and Me is a story that combines longstanding medical mysteries, remarkable scientific breakthroughs, ethical dilemmas, and political debate.
My Father, My Brother and Me tracks the mystery behind this gateway disease. Parkinson’s is actually more common that any other neurological condition save Alzheimer’s. In fact, more people have Parkinson’s than the combined numbers for Multiple Sclerosis, ALS and Muscular Dystrophy. But despite its prevalence, it doesn’t call much attention to itself.

And yet within this mundane progression, this halting story that doesn't rush to a dramatic close, there lies a tantalizing mystery of real scientific significance.
