Many people with Parkinson's find their symptoms get worse during coronavirus lockdowns.
Together, we can provide vital support and fund life-changing research for people living with Parkinson's and their loved ones.
For Drew, a married father of two, Parkinson's means he can't have the career he dreamed of. Diagnosed at 34, he suffers from stiffness, rigidity and fatigue. This means he can't do everyday tasks easily, like taking a shower or brushing his teeth. Sometimes he can't move his hands or pick things up.
"It hurts to know I can't have the career I wanted. I was setting myself up to become a luthier - someone who builds instruments and toys and furniture. I love making things and working with wood. After I was diagnosed, I became really depressed.
"It's hard to put into words just how life-changing a new treatment would be. It would mean getting my future back. My kids getting their dad back to his full potential. And my wife getting the man she married back."
Together, we can deliver new treatments. Faster.
We urgently need new treatments. For Drew. And for his wife and children. And for everyone living with Parkinson's. You can fund the most promising research today.
