Parkinson Superwalk Support for Chris Slack
Everyday Heroes. Extraordinary Hope.
Thanks for taking a look at my personal page. Since my dear husband’s Parkinson diagnosis in Feb 2016, life has been full of constant changes. This past year, his neurologist started believing that he has a condition called MSA (multiple systems atrophy) which makes his everyday life even more challenging. Some challenges in particular came from breaking his collarbone while falling doing a minor task couple of weeks ago. Changes and challenges are forever ongoing. For the past two years and again this September, I’m joining everyday heroes from communities across Canada as part of Parkinson SuperWalk, especially for my hero Chris! One thing that cannot change is the ongoing support which is why I am asking you for your support at this time.
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.
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.

Every dollar means new hope. Thank you!
