Story

I am Angela McHardy and I was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease 3 years ago. Although this diagnosis is life changing, I believe wholeheartedly that a negative mind will never give you a positive life.You cannot let this disease define you, you must create your own definition of this new life. I am a different person now. I think I had too much dopamine before! So, where I used to be annoyingly enthusiastic, now I'm more measured in that enthusiasm! My beloved Dad also had PD...so this is a nod to him too.

I was lucky enough to attend one of Karl Sterlings Parkinsons Regeneration Training workshops in London and it was one of the most rewarding experiences for me. I realise that these workshops are not accessible for all and can indeed be beyond reach financially for many; so with this in mind, I want to provide a platform for those living with PD, their carers and health professionals who may benefit in some way as I have from Karl's programme and so much more.

Myself, and an amazing group of very talented friends are planning a 2 day event in November which will offer : Parkinsons Regeneration Workshop, Yoga, Smovey Coaching, Lingo Live, Vocal Workshops (more to be added dependent on funds raised).That's just our starter for 10! Event updates via Facebook Driving with the Brakes on.

I greatly appreciate any donations no matter how big or small, please help me realise me dream of changing the perception of PD and realising the potential of approaches beyond medication.

Love

Angela x

P.S. An enormous thanks to my brother's partner Jill who set up this page for me. Jill......you're a star.

    Hi. we're doing really well but page is showing we have £1390 more than we have because of me having to withdraw max amount from which I paid Karl's flights and now I've put that back! We have still to put in the money from Linda's night , which was phenomenal! I'll see if Just Giving can fix! Aghhh! So just remember the actual amount we now have is 3560 minus 1390! In trying to keep everything right I've just caused confusion !
