Mischa was asked to be a guest speaker for the National Parkinson’s Association, Orange County Chapter. She facilitated 2 sessions of the I AM Who I Say I AM techniques for health and wellness. Mischa says, “Spending the last 1.5 year of his life with Jack was an extraordinary experience for me. To witness his courage and strength and the undying humor that carried us through.”
