Support Patricia Hansen for Parkinson SuperWalk
No Matter What.
This is it! Another year, and a very strange one, I must say! As we begin to plan for Superwalk 2020, there are many questions on our minds. Will the walk go ahead on September 12? or will we still be "social distancing"?
SEPTEMBER 12, 2020 - (July 3, 2020) I want you to know why I plan to take part in TheParkinsonSuperwalk2020. Since I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease on February 1, 1999, I have been plagued with symptoms from stiffness to slowness to balance problems, the latter being the worst, because it has caused many falls, resulting in a replaced hip, a replaced knee, a broken shoulder, all very painful and all very costly in time and money, which we can ill afford. I now live at the Carleton Place Terrace Seniors Residence, and I have discovered there are six other people living with Parkinson's (PLWP) in my building. Seeing others struggle with symptoms similar to mine makes me realize just how great the need is to walk with the thousands across the country this September to bring awareness to these people suffering with Parkinson's first of all, and to their care teams and, finally, to the general public as well, that there are 25 people being diagnosed daily with this difficult and dangerous disease and we need to prepare all these people with appropriate exercises, and with education through various literature, supplied by Parkinson Canada.
