Parkinson's sufferer takes on 40ft waves | SWNS TV

A young Parkinson's sufferer took on terrifying 40ft waves to become first to row 3,600 miles across the Indian Ocean - before his "body gave up on me". Robin Buttery, 47, has become the first ever Parkinson's disease sufferer to row across an ocean after completing the "life-changing" 70-day challenge. Robin rowed from Australia to Mauritius alongside three highly experienced ocean rowers. He did this despite his daily struggle with tremors, mild memory loss, limited physical strength and having to "force" his body to row for 70 brutal days.
