Mark Young: Look for positive people. Workshop with my book: DECIDE SUCCESS – You Ain’t Dead Yet. Available on or at
Many thanks John, it’s taken us about 3 years to come to terms with PD but now we want to take positive steps to make the most of life, rather than think just about the negative side of things. I will check out your book. Best Regards – Mark

Parkinsons Advice

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Jackie Russell • Start a small exercise group for PD. Use Delay the Disease materials ( I am the nurse involved and partnered with David Zid and we are passionate about the changes in symptoms when you add daily exercise that is Parkinson’s specific. Certainly can fight this disease with hope, and exercise puts you back in control of this progressive disease. Good luck and stay active. Our book and DVD could help you get started.

Maria Kassova • John, I only just saw your video … Ain\'t Dead Yet

…and I am so moved and touched. I currently write a book on confidence and one of the key premises of being confident is choosing the positive perspective. My heart was filled with respect and admiration for your positivity, huge inner power AND sincerity. I agree that at the time ‘disaster’ strikes (we don’t call it that after, but it feels like it at first) it is hard to be cheerful and find the flip side. Yet our attitude towards life then takes over – and we make the choice. As you have done – ‘you ain’t dead yet, let’s to the best of the time I’ve got. Sky diving, inspiring others, write another book, spend time with my loved ones…Seeing your video is one of my Christmas discoveries / gifts. I will be showing your clips in my confidence workshops….so your legacy and inspiration is spread over in Singapore and other parts of the world. May 2012 bring you a new lease of energy, ideas and desire to keep going and touching the hearts and souls of your family, friends and thousands of other people throughout the world…sending you a big virtual hug from Singapore.

So you have Parkinsons, what do you do now?

Review of New Orleans Mouse Story:

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Is it possible to rate a speaker above excellent? It is if you have heard John Baumann. He has spirit and energy, knowledge and compassion. Before taking the podium if time permits, he mingles with the group, looking at everyone,listening, chatting.  He then goes on to give a very personalized presentation.  His “You ain’t dead yet” story sums it all up.  Thank you John for making our Parkinson’s Awareness Night with the Indiana Pacers a huge success.

Parkinsons Awareness Event at NBA Pacers Game

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

It was great working with you again . When the people started coming in, I got the greatest feeling I have had in a while to see all of the people that were coming to the event that Linda and I organized and put together. I have always enjoyed giving to other people, this by far is this biggest thing I have done to give back to people. The program, from what I hear, was really great.  Your part of the presentation helped everyone put things into perspective and was very informative. I wish we would have got to talk more before or after the game, but things were a little chaotic. I really enjoyed meeting your son. He was very nice and helped out setting up the tables for the program. We have your CD’s until you tell us what you want us to do with them. I look forward to seeing you. Did PAACI talk to you about doing a symposium in the fall or do we need to keep on them? We will be there in Cincinatti to help you out as well. Anytime you need us to help with anything and we are available, we will be there.
