Donate and make breakthroughs happen
Every hour, two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson's.
Will you help find a cure?
He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at 43.
"For the past 14 years, I’ve been running an art class which helps me manage my symptoms. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s over 20 years ago when I started to experience lack of mobility and dexterity in my hand.
"I felt numb when I was told. I didn’t want to lose my mobility. My son was only 12. He couldn’t see much of a difference to begin with but as my symptoms worsened my family have really helped. We make a great team.
"If my medicine isn’t working - I don’t work. My symptoms change by the hour. A bad hour could see me completely stuck in a chair unable to move. I try to deal with each day as it comes.
"One day I hope to see a cure. A cure for me would mean freedom. Freedom of thoughts, because with Parkinson’s, you have to break each movement down into small parts which is really tiring. So being able to do things naturally would be wonderful."
Someday we will find a cure. But we will get there sooner with your help.
