Welcome to My Personal Page
My wife, Dianne, was diagnosed with Parkinson's in September 2013. This certainly came as a shock, but also a relief - a relief that we finally knew what has been causing her fatigue and motor control difficulties over the past five years. Facing a future living with Parkinson's is challenging. This disease has a cruel way of taking things from those affected. However, we remain bouyed by the ongoing efforts that are made in characterizing and treating this disease and remain optimistic that it will be beaten!
This September we will join more than 10,000 Canadians who take part in the Parkinson SuperWalk. Together we raise funds for education and support services, not only for people with Parkinson's, but also for their caregivers and family members too in communities across Canada. This annual event also raises funds for research into the causes of Parkinson's, better treatments and one day, a cure. When you walk with me or sponsor me, you bring us closer to this year's goal. Every dollar means new hope.
