Friends and family!
I've decided to join the walk Saturday to both help advocate for, and raise funds to help the research efforts for Parkinson's Disease! I'm walking for my DAD, my HERO!!! Anyone want to join me!? Or perhaps donate to the cause that hits home for my family!?
If you know someone who has/had Parkinson's Disease then you understand the hell that this disease wreaks on the body and mind! It's a horrible disease, and I can't stand to watch it slowly and painfully eat away at my Dad's, once seemingly, invincible mind and body. It can be devastating, but I choose to see the brighter side! At least his spirit is unshakeable (pun intended), and his humour in the face of this disease is what really helps us cope! Laughter truly is the best medicine.
For now, I will do my part in raising awareness and funds for research! This is my start. This is for you Dad. Love you x
Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope.
Thanks for taking a look at my personal page. This September, I’m joining everyday heroes from communities across Canada as part of Parkinson SuperWalk. I’d like to tell you why, and what your donation will do.
The need is only increasing. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day; more than one person every hour. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. I am participating in Parkinson SuperWalk to fund the increasing need for support, advocacy and research.
Your donation fuels better health outcomes for Canadians living with Parkinson's today, and it supports the Parkinson Canada Research Program which works with Canada's brightest researchers to find the next big breakthroughs in treatment. This is why I'm asking for your support today.
Help me ensure Parkinson Canada is there for Canadians living with Parkinson’s today – while funding research into better treatments and one day, a cure.
To show your support, click the DONATE NOW button on the right hand side of the page, above the progress meter and achievements.
Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!
