My Grandpa had PD
Most of the memories I have of my grandpa are impressions of a man with Parkinson's disease. Grandpa and I did many things together when I was young - playing cards, having fun at the cottage, reading books - but living with PD gradually made these activities very difficult. My endlessly compassionate grandmother was his primary caregiver until he died in 1999.
Over 100,000 Canadians have PD, yet scientists are still not sure of the cause. While the search for a cure goes on, there have been advances in managing symptoms. It has been exciting to see meaningful advances in research, even since my grandfather's death just 20 years ago.
I am passionate about the need to support research into PD. Since joining Porridge for Parkinson's, I have been thoroughly impressed with the committee's dedicated volunteers who are responsible for consistently putting on an elegant event with ever-increasing revenues. I am excited to be involved in the event this year as co-chair.
