Weʼre raising £579 to Parkinson's Decease. I need to raise the initial £84.75 and then the £495.00 to be able to do a Sky Dive for Parkinson's Decease Research.

My Sister and I lost our Mum far too early to this horrible Parkinson's Decease. She left behind 2 Loving Children and 3 Grandchildren and Countless friends. She was always the Life and Soul of a Party. I took her loss very hard and, with many other issues around the same time, I suffered Mental Health Issues. I am getting through with the help of Support Workers and Medication which, as a nearly 52 Year 'Young' Man, I feel quite ashamed to admit but I shouldn't feel ashamed to admit. There is still a 'Stigma' about Men admitting they have problems and it shouldn't be the case anymore. We are now in 2018 and Mental Health is still a field that needs serious addressing and funding, especially for Younger People these days with increasing pressures and stress. It was, indeed, Pressure and Stress that brought on this Decease to My Lovely Mum. She would 'Cover Up' her stresses and it took the Ultimate Toll on her Health and, indeed, her Life. We All Miss Her Very Much, every day. I would just like to contribute a little to the cause of Parkinson's Research so that, One Day, there may be a 'Cure' . She was able to overcome Cancer but had to sacrifice one of her Breasts. Mumsy even did a Naked Calendar along with other people whom had Life Changing Illnesses and raised money for a charity called 'Pauls Place' in Bristol. She was an AMAZING Person, an AMAZING MUM and a down to earth person. She is Greatly Missed. Love You Mumsy. <3 X Andy X <3
