« I am thrilled to be working with the Parkinson Canada team on my podcast, and as part of the walk. It is extremely important that Canadians have equity of access to information, movement disorder specialists, informed GPs, early diagnosis, medications, treatments, and wellness activities. Parkinson Canada works tirelessly to get us closer to that reality each day. By partnering with the podcast they are also raising the voices of people with Parkinson’s. The more we tell our stories, the more it drives awareness of PD, which is need for funding research and ultimately finding a way to stop PD in its tracks. No matter what. That’s why I walk.
