Jimmy Choi – USA
Jimmy Choi, a member of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) Patient Council, was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson's disease at age 27. After his diagnosis in 2003, Jimmy lived in denial and tried to avoid the disease by remaining inactive. By 2010, he weighed 240 pounds and walked with a cane. After a bad fall, he had no choice but to confront the disease head-on and regain control of his life. The rest is history. Come and watch an American Ninja Warrior in action!
