My dad, Dave Wallace, died of Parkinson's Disease in 2012, and I have several other family members and friends who either had or have Parkinson's. My own personal experience of caring for someone with Parkinson's ended with my dad's death, but my desire is to help others, and ultimately to find a cure for this nasty illness.
All contributions, no matter how big or how small, are critical to those affected by Parkinson's. I am grateful for any support you can give for my walk this year, to 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!
