On Father’s Day 2016, I died for three minutes after a cardiac arrest. I survived and with medication, expected to live a healthy life. Parkinson’s is not like that. There is no going back. Parkinson’s is now part of my life.

I didn’t know much about Parkinson’s before my diagnosis. But now I know it’s prevalent and it can be debilitating. It is progressive and there is no cure. I also know that 27,000 other Victorian’s like me, live with Parkinson’s every day.

Arming yourself with knowledge is key to managing the symptoms of Parkinson’s. That is why Parkinson’s Victoria is so important. They are here for all Victorians living with Parkinson’s, their families and carers.

That is why the support offered by Parkinson’s Victoria is more vital now than ever before. Continuing an outreach program to help those who are struggling and innovating telehealth, education and online support are key to Parkinson’s Victoria being able to continue to help us manage and live well with Parkinson’s during this pandemic and beyond.

After learning about Parkinson’s Victoria and the vital services it offers, I have taken up the exciting opportunity of being Ambassador for 27forParkinson’s. I invite you to join me or support me with a donation in the 27forParkinson’s 2020 challenge.

With your support, Parkinson’s Victoria can continue to provide information, education and peer support services when it’s needed most to people with Parkinson’s, family members, carers and health care professionals.

Please support my walk by donating to my fundraising page. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks - John!
