The work to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's would not be possible without Volunteer Educators like Jeremy.
Jeremy's father had Parkinson's and when he was told he had also inherited this progressive incurable condition, the diagnosis seemed devastating. He turned for help to his local Parkinson's branch and found friendship and a perfect use for his skill of communicating.
This year, Jeremy has dedicated himself to a personal mission of raising awareness of Parkinson's in nursing homes across Somerset.
Through his talks he shares his knowledge and very personal insights of living with Parkinson's. Hearing from someone with the condition resonates strongly with staff and leaves a powerful and lasting message.
As Jeremy says, educating others gives me the opportunity to give back and make a real difference for others living with the same condition. Life goes on, at a slightly slower pace.
