Over the phone to New York City, I ask my sister, "How's swim team?" "I went this morning," she answers, "and a substitute coach complimented me on my arm turnover. Really made me feel good.

My baby sis, 10 years my junior, is on a competitive swim team whose members ride the subway at 5 a.m. on icy mornings to work out in barely heated pools. After years of successful meets, including a relay around Manhattan, her troublesome slowing became a diagnosis: Parkinson's disease.
