On September 8th, I'll be participating in the Parkinson Superwalk, as a member of Team Chapow (Chappell-Pow).
I’ve been personally touched by the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. Last August Peter was diagnosed. Neither of us knew much about Parkinson's at the time, and so we began what is an ongoing learning process. Parkinson's is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's and can manifest itself in a range of both motor and non-motor (often "hidden") symptoms. No two people get the same symptoms, and currently there is no cure. Peter and I are taking what steps we can to try to delay the progression of symptoms. Our hope is that research leads to better treatments.
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.
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!
