Poems for World Parkinson's Day

We all have a Parkinson’s story to tell. For World Parkinson's Day 2022, the community shared their stories through poetry and told the world what it's like to live with Parkinson's.

Our community shared hundreds of poems with us this World Parkinson's Day. Happy, funny, sad and thoughtful, you shared your stories and told the world how Parkinson's has affected you or someone you love. 

Many poems were shared on social media and on billboards across the UK. All of the poems are now available to read online.
