Thank you for visiting our team page. My name is Hilary and I am 26 years old.

I been living with Parkinson symptoms since age 14, and was diagnosed in 2015 at age 24. 

After my diagnosis I discovered the Parkinson’s Society and found the support I needed through their counselling services. This wouldn’t have been possible without events like the Parkinson Superwalk.

By supporting this event, your donations not only go towards finding a cure, but will also provide support to people with Parkinson’s that can be life changing.

parkinsons awareness month | april 2017

God has taught me so much through living with Him while having Parkinson’s Disease. Having Parkinson’s Disease has made me slow down and has changed the way I think about situations. Soon after my diagnosis in 2015, I began having panic attacks. At this same time I was learning about how important it is to protect my thoughts, and to have a positive perspective in situations. Through this, God has taught me to change in a new way by living centring my thoughts and actions on His word.

A valuable connection I’ve made this year is the Parkinson’s Society BC. I found them by googling “parkinson’s panic attacks”. I began CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) with one of their counsellors and have experienced so much healing through my sessions and hard work. Although I do notice my anxiety creeping up when I don’t keep up with the “tools” that have helped me. Here is the page with their counselling information.

1 John 2: 5-6 But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: whoever claims to live in him must live as he did.
