If you’re struggling, or love someone who’s struggling with a chronic disease, this is a MUST READ.
“Parkinson’s can be frightening because it’s still so unknown. Fear and depression are common among Parkinson’s patients. If I can give them a few moments of laughter, I can give them hope. Hope is everything. And it starts with laughter.”
Vikki has also been featured on the Michael J. Fox Website, the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop, Scary Mommy, Huffington Post, Midlife Boulevard, Better After 50, Funny Times Magazine, and is a contributing writer to the Life Well Blogged book series. In 2014, she received a BlogHer Voice of the Year award for Humor.

Having a father with Parkinson’s, and a great sense of humor, taught me one great lesson: You’ve got to keep laughing through a day of tremors. There is no one – I mean, no one – that makes me laugh more than Vikki Claflin.

Vikki approaches living with a chronic illness with levity and enviable grace. She proves the old adage, “Laughter is the best medicine,” to be true. It doesn’t take a Parkinson’s diagnosis to be able to relate, and most importantly, laugh along with her.

I never thought I’d laugh out loud reading about someone living with Parkinson’s disease. As the parent of a child with a serious illness, I am inspired by Vikki’s humor, and strive to bring the same comic relief into my family’s life.
