Embracing Parkinson's

Uplifting Conversations about Facing Parkinson’s with Resilience & Positivity

“Embracing Parkinson’s” is an audiobook that tells an inspirational story of friendship and resilience, centered around Frank Antonicelli and Joe Green, two individuals brought together by their shared journey with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Frank, diagnosed with PD in 2007, was introduced to Joe, a local movement disorder specialist, in 2008. From their first encounter, Frank and Joe discovered a common vision and belief in using the life lessons taught by football—dedication, commitment, perseverance, and overcoming adversity—to confront PD head-on.

As you listen to Frank and Joe, you may get the feeling that you are sitting in a football locker room hearing a pre-game motivational speech. Embracing Parkinson’s provides inspiration and hope for anyone touched by PD and their caregivers.

 Despite the challenges I face, I refuse to let Parkinson’s sideline my spirit



Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. – James 1:2-4
