"I kept it to myself for a couple of years and would even sit on my hand so people wouldn’t see it shaking.”

A brave admission from Shirley about coming to terms with her Parkinson's diagnosis. No one with Parkinson's should have to hide their symptoms.

"I have buddies from my Parkinson's UK local group who I can ring up and say 'How are you today?'" - Paul

“My life is largely governed by managing and controlling my increasingly debilitating Parkinson's symptoms, and the side effects from the medication I take to keep them at bay.

Parkinson's Awareness Week saw the launch of our first public fundraising campaign. We're putting the money towards vital research, so we can find better treatments and a cure. Together we told the world, that we won't wait any longer.
