Man with Parkinson’s disease refuses to give up on dream of sailing

As they prepare to set sail, Steve Van Vlaenderen takes his time.

“Physically, I’m a lot slower on the boat so I’m a lot more cautious,” he tells CTV News Toronto.

That’s because he is living with Parkinson’s disease and his motor skills are deteriorating.

Van Vleanderen was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease back in 2011.
