Our Journey: Living with Parkinson's
Every year, Parkinson Society BC dedicates the month of April to raising awareness of the unique experiences of people with Parkinson's disease (PD), and the needs of our community. Awareness Month is an opportunity to engage the public in expanding their understanding of Parkinson's, and its profound effects on the lives of over 13,000 British Columbians living with the disease.
As part of Parkinson's Awareness Month, join this special online panel event as four presenters who have lived with PD share their stories of hardship and triumph. Our panel speakers are:
- Mike Scales, newly diagnosed
- Gina Lupino, living with Young Onset Parkinson’s disease
- Debbie Hartley, living well with Parkinson's for 8 years
- Mark Hutchinson, speaking from a carepartner perspective
Every journey with Parkinson's is unique, but many will relate to the emotions that come with navigating its ups and downs. Hearing stories from those who have endured similar challenges may help empower you to overcome your own. This webinar will also feature a question and answer period. People with Parkinson's, carepartners, and families are all welcome to attend.
