TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A Toledo man with Parkinson's disease took a big step in his journey on Thursday, and he invited Toledo News Now's Rob Wiercinski along, as his deep brain stimulation equipment was turned on for the first time.
Fred Ankney was diagnosed nearly two years ago, and in his case, he hasn't responded well to medication. Ankney had electrodes implanted into his brain and a pacemaker placed near his heart, with impulses sent to his brain aimed to short-circuit the short circuit caused by Parkinson's.
During the test, there were noticeable differences in his voice and his ability to freely move his hands. For Ankney, this will allow him to reduce his medication and control his symptoms.
"It's incredible. I feel like I can smile again, which I haven't been able to do in a very long time," he said. "To improve my quality of life in the little bit we've done today and the fact we're going to do even better is amazing."
Ankney wants to be an advocate for people living with Parkinson's, and this has inspired him to start a new effort called ‘A Journey for Change', in which he's coordinating neighborhood clean-ups and other community service projects.
