Back in 2012, Jeff Cook was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. It wasn’t until five years later that he made the decision to go public with his diagnosis. At the time, Jeff reassured his fans that he was not quitting or walking away. He, however, was going to listen to his body. And, his body was telling him he needed to take a break.

I’m not calling it quits, but sometimes our bodies dictate what we have to do, and mine is telling me it’s time to take a break and heal. I do believe in prayer and I appreciate all the continued prayers throughout this difficult time.
