I am 71, semi-retired and was diagnosed with PD at the end of 2014. Since 1999 I have devoted some of my free time each year to fund-raising and volunteering for a variety of charities. As I move towards full retirement I want to combine some of my skills and Parkinson’s UK’s RIGeast seemed a good place to start!
Alan Cameron – Ipswich / Felixstowe branch
I have been living with Parkinson’s since 2005 when I was 39. I have been an active volunteer for Parkinson’s UK since 2012 mostly with the Research Support Network. In 2013 I was lucky enough to be at World Parkinson’s Congress which gave me a great introduction to Parkinson’s research. I’m keen to do what I can to speed up the search for better treatments and the cure(s). I am a member of the Research Support Network development team and have recently joined the newly formed East of England Research Interest Group.
