Soania Mathur, MD and her daughters Sarika, Neha and Mareeya share their experiences communicating about Parkinson’s in their family.
This webcast from the Brian Grant Foundation is part of our Kids of Parkinson’s program, which aims to support the unique needs of people who have a parent with PD. Soania was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the age of 27 while pregnant with her first daughter. Today her eldest daughters attend university and her youngest daughter is in high school. They share their experiences talking about Parkinson’s and provide advice to other families.
A Parkinson’s diagnosis affects everyone, your partner, family, friends and acquaintances. Keep your communication open and express how you are feeling about your condition and take time to also listen to how they are feeling.
Soania has now dedicated her time to patient education, writing, and Parkinson’s advocacy. She is passionate about sharing with patients the coping strategies available to them in order to face the challenges of adjusting physically and emotionally to this disease.
