Peter and I will be once again participating in Parkinson Superwalk this September. Peter was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease five years ago, and that’s when we began our unanticipated PD journey together. Resources and support offered through Parkinson Society BC continue to help us find our way.
PD is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that manifests itself in a range of more than 40 different symptoms, both visible and hidden. No two people get dealt the same hand in terms of symptoms — it’s a mixed bag. Peter had been noticing some of his symptoms for quite a few years before his diagnosis but didn't know they were related to PD.
There is promising research being conducted to provide better treatments and find a cure, however adequate funding is a constant issue.
Your donation will go towards research, advocacy, and the excellent programs and services offered by Parkinson Society BC.
Your support helps! Any contribution, no matter how big or how small, is truly appreciated.
