Alysia is Walking the Block for Parkinson's
Thanks for Your Support!
My grandfather, Louis Christiaen, fought Parkinson's until he passed. It is a terrible, debilitating disease that robs a person of their independence and freedom. It was difficult for him to lose his ability to walk and talk. It was a struggle for his family and loved ones to watch him deteriorate because of this disease.
The money raised in the Walk the Block provides support programs for those with Parkinson's in Southwestern Ontario, and allows the PSSO to invest in research to alleviate the symptoms of the disease and to find a cure.
For a person living with Parkinson’s, each day can be a struggle to perform common tasks that most of us take for granted. Medication can help symptoms, but there’s no cure for this progressive neurodegenerative disease. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s is expected to double.
With your support, together, we can ensure that there is a place for people living with Parkinson’s to turn to – a place like Home. Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario provides much needed programs services, advocacy and research initiatives to build and spread awareness, care and support for Parkinson’s. They are Home for everyone living with Parkinson’s Disease in Southwestern Ontario.
Please support me as I WALK THE BLOCK for Parkinson’s this September. Your donation will stay local and help make a difference to more than 10,000 people living with Parkinson’s right here at Home.
