Our family has been personally touched by the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. My brother Rick Smyth suffers from Parkinson’s disease and Jim’s brother Ted has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease as well. We are fundraising to honour our brothers and raise much needed dollars for Parkinson Society British Columbia. We are excited to participate in the actual walk this year after the Covid hiatus.
All contributions, no matter how big or how small, are critical to those affected by Parkinson’s. I hope you’ll support us and help us reach our 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 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.
We recognize that you receive many worthwhile requests and we hope you will consider supporting ours. Thank you!
Deb & Jim
