Parkinson’s Awareness Week is fast approaching (18 – 24 April) and the media team need your help. We are still looking for people who are happy to share their stories with the media in the lead up to and during the week.
Over the last year we’ve been hearing from people with Parkinson’s that saying the words ‘I have Parkinson’s’ can be an incredibly difficult experience and can mean that people delay sharing their diagnosis with significant people in their lives.
Have you delayed telling someone about your diagnosis? This could be friends, family or employers, and for any reason - because you felt ashamed, guilty or thought you would be stigmatised; or because you simply could not find the right words or did not want to accept the diagnosis.
Or perhaps you’re a loved one, and you know it was a real struggle for someone to share their diagnosis with you.
Whatever your experience, if you would like to share your story, please get in touch with us by calling 0207 963 3945 or emailing [email protected]
