"I am strongly recommending this book to nurses, health care providers, medical students, and physicians at all levels. The book reminds us that medical illnesses and their treatments have many effects on patients well beyond our office, the hospital, and the doctor-patient relationship. While it can be difficult, if the medical professions do not take these effects into consideration, we cannot fully treat the whole patient."
"Family and friends of patients with any chronic illnesses will also benefit from reading this book. We often tend to withdraw from those with illnesses that are difficult for us to comprehend and cannot relate. Brian shows us how important those family members and friends are in his struggles. Their ability to sympathize, understand, and assist are crucial to his or her battles to live a more satisfactory and productive life."
"Finally, this book deserves to not only be read but to become a guide for those with any chronic illness, not just Parkinson’s disease. It is not how Brian responds to his specific illness but that he does respond. Each patient will have their own specific problems to face. Brian shows that with grit, determination, and help from others rewards are obtainable. He encourages others to find their own compromise with their own illness and to struggle on!"

This year's race scheduled on August 19, 2023, was postponed, and then canceled due to extreme winds, rain, and very cold temperatures above the tree-line, to the summit. These dangerous weather conditions increasingly got worse as the weekend went on. Mt, Washington, once again lives up to its reputation of having the world's worst weather.
Sadly, this was Brian's last MWARBH race. He would like to thank his family, friends, and everyone who has helped to support his efforts throughout the years participating in this event. Thank you one, and all!
