Skiing with Parkinson's Disease - Personal Stories

David Blatt inspires others that skiing and sport can still be a part of life even with Parkinson’s disease.

“I hope to inspire people with Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions to challenge conventional wisdom about what we should be able to do and what the disease is supposed to do to us.

My goals include helping people with chronic medical conditions be as healthy and active as possible in spite of their conditions.

I was healthy and active before developing Parkinson's disease and I have tried to remain as active as I would be if i did not have Parkinson's disease. Of course I have not achieved that goal - but it still is my goal.

I love your website. Skiing has been tremendously important in helping me live with Parkinson's disease and I would enjoy the opportunity to ski with you if you ever want to visit Oregon – thank you for the work Ski 2 Freedom is doing.”
