I’ve been personally touched by the challenges of Parkinson’s disease.
Like many people, I was diagnosed with Essential Tremors. In the fall of 2019 it became clear that I had Parkinson's disease. The resources from the Parkinson's Society have been very helpful. I'm glad to help fundraise in the "Walk". I will be walking also to remember a friend, Francis Grill, who died with Parkinson's this year.
All contributions, no matter how big or how small, are critical to those affected by Parkinson's. I hope you’ll support my walk this year and help me reach my fundraising goal.
Parkinson's disease is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's and can manifest itself in a range of both motor and non-motor symptoms. Living with Parkinson's can be incredibly challenging for the individual as well as for their family, friends, and carepartners. Currently, there is no cure.
Your donation will help Parkinson Society British Columbia continue to provide valuable programs, services, advocacy efforts, and research contributions.
Every dollar is one step closer to improving the lives of those in need.
Please support me. Thank you!
