Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease there is just hope.
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2015. This was a very scary time for me and my family and the Parkinson Society of BC was there to provide information and support services so that we did not feel like we were facing this disease on our own.
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 has been incredibly challenging for me, my husband and my family and friends. In particular, this past year has been very difficult because my disease progressed faster than expected and I experienced a number of non-motor symptoms which impacted on the quality of my life. Again, the Parkinson Society of BC was there to support me by providing specific services that helped me to accept my new challenges.
It is now my turn to support the Parkinson Society of BC which is a not-for-profit organization supported entirely by donations from individuals, members, corporations and foundations. I am part of a team that is fundraising for the Parkinson Society of BC
SuperWalk is the largest fundraiser for the Parkinson Society of BC. All contributions, no matter how big or how small, are critical to those affected by Parkinson's.
Your donation will help the 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 and gets us that much closer to finding a cure!
Please support me and my team "Oliver + Osoyoos Online Steppers" reach our fundraising goals.
