Teva Neuroscience Sponsors Book That Celebrates Daily Victories Over

Parkinson's

NEW YORK, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Most people view an illness as a handicap. A number of people with Parkinson's disease (PD), an age-related degenerative disorder of the brain which normally affects people over the age of 60, have each penned their own inspirational story compiled in a new book titled "Proud Hands." "Proud Hands" celebrates the daily victories of 28 people from across the country who are affected by PD, and depicts the various activities some use to live well despite their illness. The book is a combination of personal photos and stories submitted by both patients and caregivers to provide encouragement to the more than 1 million people in the U.S. who are affected by PD.

"Proud Hands" features a celebrity foreword by Holly Robinson Peete, actress and Parkinson's advocate. Peete has a passion to help improve the quality of life for people who are affected by PD. She has dedicated herself to helping others live well with the disease, not just financially, but physically and emotionally, too. Peete and her husband Rodney founded the HollyRod Foundation in 1997 in honor of Peete's dad, Matt Robinson, who battled PD for many years.

Holly Robinson Peete will be on site to launch "Proud Hands" at the annual Parkinson's Unity Walk Saturday, April 26, 2008, at Central Park in New York City. In addition, several storytellers from "Proud Hands," and representatives from Teva Neuroscience and the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) will be there to talk about the importance of learning to live well with PD. Participants attending the Unity Walk will be able to reserve a copy of "Proud Hands" at the Teva Neuroscience booth.

"It's efforts such as this one made by Teva Neuroscience that allows my organization, HollyRod Foundation, to continue serving the PD community throughout the United States," said H
