Support [NAME] for Parkinson SuperWalk
I was reminded recently that often the things that are most important are often the things that are hard. Perhaps that is why it has been so hard for researchers to find a cure for Parkinsons, a disease that effects far too many people and takes so much from the person that has the disease and all those around him/her.
This year in particular has also been very hard for me. I'm embarrassed to admit how much I've 'let' my disease take away from me and I'm in the process of trying to take some of it back but I've got a long way to go. I'll need my friends and family more than ever to help me with that. Many of my new friends are also people with Parkinsons disease or people that have it in their lives as a family member or friend. It is for these people as well as myself that I ask you to please consider making a donation to help us achieve the goal of finding a cure for Parkinsons. I still have hope. Thank you.
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 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.
