Parkinson’s disease has afflicted millions of people all over the globe. It does not choose its victims. It does not favor between high or low income, educational background nor does it spare those with great amounts of fame. Parkinson’s disease can happen to anyone. This is why it is important to understand this disease and learn ways in coping. In author S. Lynne Borkowski’s “Crying is Not an Option, readers will see an up-close and personal glimpse into the trials and tribulations of a wife as she cared for her husband diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Painting a clear picture of the daily battles Borkowski had to face, this selection broadens reader’s minds and enhances their appreciation for the love and support of a significant partner especially in times of suffering.

The author and her husband had the most wonderful journey in their thirty years of marriage together. What they did not know was that they were being prepared for the hardest two years of their married life. When Ron suffered Parkinson’s disease, it had seemed like the world they had built came crashing down, but crying was not an option especially for the author as she took the responsibility of caring for her husband. Instead of feeling down, she opted for an alternative. She found humor in all things.

An inspiring story of hope, love and the unwavering human spirit, Crying is Not an Option is a literary beacon of light to all those who, like Borkowski, would like to face their hard times with positivity and happiness.

As the author’s way of extending her blessings, gratitude and love, twenty-percent of this book’s profit will go to the Parkinson’s Foundation.
