Review for Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor, Aiken, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known Diann Shaddox all my life. We went to the same public school, the same church, and the same college. A few years ago, we reconnected on Facebook to find that we were on opposite coasts: she in South Carolina and I in San Jose, CA. I was sorry to learn that she had essential tremor (ET). I was familiar with ET because my grandmother had the disease. I saw my grandmother struggle to write legibly and as the ET advanced, she lost the ability to sew, knit, crochet, needlepoint, and play the piano. Essential tremor robs its victims of abilities that most people take for granted. I am proud of Diann because of the way she responded to ET. She became determined to find a cure for essential tremor, and so, she started the Diann Shaddox Foundation. She works tirelessly to educate the world about ET by traveling and speaking, plus she writes novels that financially benefit ET research. No one else is better advocate voice for essential tremor sufferers than Diann Shaddox.
