Before Gordon was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, he & Ann had a busy, active, fun life. They first met at university, fell in love and got married. And like most young married couples at that time, they bought a house and within a couple of years started having kids.

Ann and Gordon Crandell

Ann left her teaching job to stay at home and look after the family. Gordon was a civil engineer and worked for a big construction company. Later he ran his own company. And Ann helped him. In fact, they worked and lived together 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They were true partners.

Gordon was a man of his generation. A little bit removed from the day to day parenting of three girls, but always fun to be around. He made a point of spending lots of time with Karen, Dawn and Beverly on weekends, and they would have fun as a family at the lake.

Gordon was a strong, kind man who looked after his family. That was Gordon before Parkinson’s.

A few years ago, Gordon died on Christmas Eve. Two days shy of his and Ann’s 55th wedding anniversary. The saddest thing for the girls was seeing their mother losing her husband in little pieces at a time. The burden on Ann -- who would never have classified it or acknowledge that it was a burden -- just became heavier and heavier and heavier as the disease progressed.

As you may know first-hand, Parkinson’s doesn’t just affect the person that has the disease. It affects the entire family around them. So, families learn to rely on one another to cope. Thanks to your support, they can also rely on Parkinson Canada for valuable information and support to help guide their decisions about caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s.

Your generosity means the world to every family touched by Parkinson’s. In these challenging times, your support is more important than ever.

Thanks to a generous donor, every dollar you give will go three times as far to fund promising research and vital support services. Your gift will make three times the difference in the fight against Parkinson’s. Today, please give the most generous gift you can.

Parkinson Canada remains committed to helping you and your family live well with Parkinson’s. But we urgently need your help today!

Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season.
