Real life stories

Everyone's Parkinson's is different, but coping with the condition's impact on daily life is universal.

Andy's story - teaching Tai Chi with Parkinson's

"Doing this has given me purpose and structure. I have to get up to do it, I have to be here, lying in bed isn't an option."

Emma's story - diagnosed at 29

"Parkinson's makes me driven, it makes me creative, it makes me passionate about what I do. So actually it's something important to tell people about."
