FIX PARKINSON’S

I am pleased and privileged to be able announce my little contribution to helping to inform the public about Parkinsons – how it affects those diagnosed, and what some dedicated people are doing to raise awareness and raise funds for research and care.
I introduce a wonderfully engaging radio show in which a great friend and colleague Colleen Henderson-Heywood chats to ‘Fix Parkinson’s’ founder Simon Laverick. In addition to discussing how people might be impacted by a diagnosis, they also provide details about a major challenge due to be undertaken later this month. A team of willing volunteers will set off to canoe from Fort William to Inverness.
Listen in from 11am to 12 noon BST (10am to 11am UTC) on

    Ah, yes … the more awareness we can raise, the better. That’s why I wrote a book about early onset parkinsons, to help both those with the disease, and those people who know them, know that they’re not alone.
