Shari is a neighbor of mine who has been dealing with Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD), which is an extremely rare form of Parkinson's disease. She has never been married and nor does she have any children. Her only family is a brother and a nephew in New York. Sheri can not function without around the clock care. Her caregivers are the only form of community that she has. Because the exact cause of CBD is unknown, there exits no formal treatment for the disease. Instead, treatment is focused on minimizing the apperance or effect of the symptoms resulting from CBD.
