ANNUAL FUND RAISING PLEA..... WE NEED YOU!
My dad, Barry, has Parkinson Disease (PD). He wants me to tell you that it is so much more than just tremors. He has trouble walking, his body freezes, he falls alot, hallucinates sometimes which is scary, problems swallowing leading to several intense choking episodes, internal issues and overall pain. This is his story. Each PD story is different. My dad also wants you to know... DON'T LOSE HOPE. Each day is a fresh start. This last year has been really tough for my dad yet he still encourages others. He is my hero.
THE NEED: With over 13,000 British Columbians diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and the worldwide incidence expected to double by 2040, the need is greater than ever to ensure those affected by the disease are getting the care they need and deserve.
As this cause is close to our hearts, each September our family has committed to participating in Parkinson SuperWalk, and we would really appreciate your support. SuperWalk is Parkinson Society of BC's largest fund raiser and provides much needed resources for so many things, from advocacy and research $ to funding services to those living with PD.
YOUR PART: Help us achieve TEAM BARRY's fund raising goal of $1000. WE NEED YOU and your money . Please consider making a donation to our team.

Thank you from my dad and our family. Lynda Bennett
