I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2003 and had symptoms for 8 years previous. PD progressed slowly at first and then seemed to pick up pace in the last few years.
Parkinson Society of British Columbia (PSBC) has always been there offering support, education, programs, research and recently successfully advocating for more time for Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgeries in BC.
I have directly benefited from this as I had DBS surgery last September. The surgery has definitely made everyday life with PD easier. If you have the means to do so, I hope you will consider the Parkinson Society of British Columbia when making donations this year.
Thanks so much.
