Ex-Wife Resiliency Over Parkinson's Disease

Jim and his wife were delightfully living their life until a devastating moment came and ruined Tamra's normal life afterward.

 In the late 1990s, when she was in her forties, she found that she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. 

It was the worst time where there is no hope for treating the disease, but the reality did not crush her. 

She rather chooses to turn her life in a new inspiring way when the meaning and value of her life are fading away from her.
