Description

PDCON2018
Living with PD at a 'younger age' means we face our futures 'knowing' that this thing; which has for 200 years been described as a disease, the shaking palsy.. will be with be with us everyday for the rest of our lives. Now don't get me wrong. I want to see better treatments, a cure.. in my lifetime. I want my children to see me get better and not worse. There is such an abundant amount of work and progress being made in this field; in research and clinical trials - which is truly wonderful and it gives me hope. However, what about tomorrow, the next day or the next weeks or months and years? As I say, currently in 2017 we have no cure. But the daily struggles we face, remain. I have spoken to many people over the past 6 years, since my diagnosis at 29 in 2011. I truly believe that talking to others living with PD', whatever the age gap, is so beneficial and even more so when you get to meet up in person. There is so much you can take away from sharing a coffee with another pwp who might have tread a similar path as you since diagnosis.. or you might get the chance to meet another couple who have children like you.. Just for one day, we could arrange the biggest meeting of people affected by Parkinson's EVER in the UK for 2018! Just think how much we could help each other just through the power of conversation, positivity and engagement! So.. are you in? Where will we meet? Manchester city centre, UK When?Sometime between February and March 2018. If you are interested in attending, supporting or promoting PDcon2018 - please state your interest here! #TogetherWeCan
