Jimmy Choi is an incredible athlete. He runs marathons and even competed on "American Ninja Warrior." Jimmy also has Parkinson's disease, a brain disorder that causes him to shake and lose control of his body over time. While he keeps his body active with sports, he still struggles with everyday things — like simply getting a pill out of his medicine bottle.

He's been sharing his life on social media, and Tik Tokers wanted to make the little things — like taking his medication — just a little bit easier for him. Jimmy says their help with the Pill Bottle Project has relieved so much of his daily stress.

Dr. Oz immediately contacted his friends and colleagues and crafted a treatment plan with two of the country's top experts in the field: Richard S. Isaacson, MD, a neurologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the founder of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic, and Dr. Rudy Tanzi, a professor of neurology at Harvard and the founder of the "Alzheimer's Genome Project," who co-discovered the first Alzheimer's gene.
