Everything's harder when you live with Parkinson's. . . April is Parkinson's Awareness Month

Toronto, March 25, 2009 - Over 100,000 Canadians are living with Parkinson's. This April, Parkinson's disease awareness month, they want the Canadian public to know just how difficult that is – how everything is harder when your body turns against you.

Whether it is walking, eating, or getting dressed, everything takes more time, more planning and more frustration. This debilitating disease robs individuals of their careers. It takes away their freedom. It deprives them of their dignity and turns their family life upside down.
