Fred and Christine
Fred and Christine have been on the Parkinson’s journey together since Fred’s diagnosis in 2003.
While the diagnosis changed their retirement travel plans, Fred actively sought out his local Parkinson’s Peer Support Group. He soon became President of the Essendon Support Group and has grown its membership from 6 to 40 members.
“Parkinson’s is a mate you always have and it lets you know it’s there, but I don’t allow it to take over.”
