It was early in the summer of 2013, at the age of 44, that we received the shocking news that I had Parkinson’s disease. And it was shocking. A total Knock Out … .3,2,1 out! Our life was turned upside down, and we sought to better understand this insidious disease that invades me. When Dr. Fon told us about the Quebec Parkinson Network [now linked to the Canadian Open Parkinson Network], I registered without hesitation. As parents (and now grandparents), our greatest wish is to win the fight against this chronic and degenerative disease so that generations following us will speak about Parkinson’s as a curable disease. To date, I have participated in several research protocols and, to the best of my abilities, I will continue to do so.
