Jean Sharon Abbott was misdiagnosed as a young child with spastic dipligia, a form of cerebral palsy. After 33 years of countless doctors visits, medical procedures, unnecessary medications and surgeries, she was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). Jean enjoys all the adventures of her new life but wouldn’t change the journey that brought her to where she is today. Her positive attitude is highly contagious as she encourages others to appreciate the little things in life.

Her memoir, Misdiagnosed: My Thirty-Year Struggle with a Debilitating Disorder I Never Had is available on Amazon.
