Our important Christmas Appeal is on again!

Nov. 20, 2017

You may have seen Patrick Cahill’s television interview on Weekend Sunrise in July, or otherwise may have met him at a support group or health seminar. 

He recounts, “I had a really difficult time just as I was undergoing my Deep Brain Stimulation surgery and subsequent recovery midway through this year.”

“We had a number of family bereavements in the lead up to the surgery, and on the day of my appointment with my neurologist, my beautiful labrador passed away. Then, the recovery from surgery was more complex than I expected” shares Patrick who was diagnosed in 2013, aged 53.

“I’ve sought the assistance of Parkinson’s Victoria at many points since my diagnosis, and in particular when things got tough. They are full of knowledge and support,” he said.

Your donation today will make a difference.
The breadth of services and support that Patrick enjoys from Parkinson’s Victoria can only be made possible with your generous donation.  To continue to deliver and grow our services, we need to raise $50,000 by January 15, 2018.
