John Crawford from Sterling, VA
Nominated by Barbara Franklin
John is a photographer at NIH with Parkinson Disease. We met at our local Senior Center's P.D. support group. We discovered that we had many similarities & have become good friends. We are both 63 and divorced with children in their 30's and are interested in photography and both of us have PD. He has encouraged me and supported me in my pursuit of photography and we have enjoyed many activities & trips together. He has been an invaluable source of information about the disease including my membership in 23andme. I hope I have encouraged him too & added a little bit of fun to his struggle. I feel like he has been a Star in my life.
