Support JENNIFER for Parkinson SuperWalk
Our Parkinson Community Stands Together: No Matter What.
In April of this year, I lost my mom to Parkinson’s disease. This disease took away a mother, wife, nana, sister, aunt, and friend to so many people. When mom was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s, she immediately went to work gathering her “team” for our first ever walk for Parkinson’s. Unfortunately, this was the only time mom was able to participate.
So this year, I am going to walk because my mom can’t. I know she will be walking beside me the whole way. I’ll be jamming to her favourite music as I go! From our family home at 70 Fowlie St to Moonlight Bay in Rama, mom’s favourite childhood memory.
One thing that is constant in the journey with Parkinson's is change. It is an individual condition that impacts everyone differently. My family has learned through our journey is that we need to stay flexible, and understand that there are things outside of our control. This year, we are planning to walk with the Parkinson Community in September.
While we’re not sure what that event will look like, one thing I am certain of is that Parkinson’s is still an important cause and that families impacted by Parkinson’s still benefit from support, education, advocacy and guidance on how to navigate it, and research to one day prevent it. My walk and your donation support these important goals.
This September, I’m joining everyday heroes from communities across Canada as part of Parkinson Canada SuperWalk.
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.
