Find out how Parkinson’s changes everything during Parkinson Awareness Month this April

TORONTO, ON, March 31, 2016 – Parkinson’s changes everything. It is a disease of the brain that touches almost every aspect of daily living, including: movement, mood, speech, eating and drinking, sleep, and cognitive changes. It worsens over time, robbing a person of independence through increasing complications, and ultimately resulting in premature death. There is no known cause or cure for Parkinson’s disease.

This St. Patrick’s Day, defy convention and celebrate snakes!

This St. Patrick’s Day, defy convention and celebrate snakes!

For many of us, Saint Patrick is known as the protector of the rolling hills of Ireland. Every year North Americans join in celebrating his legendary story.

The green beer, shamrocks and other verdant regalia common of the current St. Paddy’s Day are actually meant to celebrate the story of St. Patrick. Folklore has it that after 40 days of fasting and wearing a garment of green, he drove the snakes out of Ireland and chased them into the sea.
