An author with Parkinson’s disease spoke about her condition and signed copies of her book at a Woodford Green bookshop on Saturday.
Terry Rummins answered questions about her work, So, I’ve Got Parkinson’s Disease, a guide to living with the neurological condition, at The Village Bookshop in High Road.
Fans of the book, which covers her experience of the disease since her diagnosis, brought copies to be signed.
She wrote the book in the hope that describing her experience will benefit others who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and to help them understand their expectations of how the condition may affect them.
Her husband Jack, who provided illustrations for a pictorial version of the book, also attended.
