Déclaration/Statement: Parkinson

Déclaration de Martha à la Chambre des communes/Statement by Martha in the House of Commons :

Monsieur le Président, avril est le Mois national de la sensibilisation à la maladie de Parkinson et cette semaine est la Semaine de sensibilisation à la maladie de Parkinson.

Depuis sa création au Canada en 1984, la Semaine de sensibilisation à la maladie de Parkinson nous donne à tous la chance de mieux connaître et de mieux faire connaître cette maladie neurologique dévastatrice dont quelque 100 000 Canadiens affectés.

This week highlights the importance of research into the causes and treatments of Parkinson's. At the forefront of advocating for this is Parkinson Society Canada, which this year is celebrating 45 years of supporting and serving Canadians and their families affected by this disease.

Parkinson Society Canada is urging all Canadians to take part in fundraising events being held in communities across the country this week, events that will raise money and awareness for the causes, symptoms, treatments and needs of people with Parkinson's and their loved ones.

We cannot give up our search for a cure.
