A Lifetime of Support: Judy and Ian’s Legacy for the Parkinson’s Community.

“You need to know it’s not enough just to survive, we need to live well. And whilst I still have the energy, I’ll continue to fundraise and raise awareness. I know it’s too late for me to benefit from new research, but it’s enough to know it could spare others some of the grief that we experienced.” Judy, 2019

Judy’s journey with Parkinson’s started in 2000. As an award-winning caterer, she had passionately worked hard all her life, so being diagnosed was a shock to her and her entire family.

Over the last 23 years, Judy and her husband Ian have had to navigate living with Parkinson’s. However, every step of the way they have had the support of Fight Parkinson’s (previously Parkinson’s Victoria).

“I was very conscious that when we re-made our Will, I would put something aside [for Fight Parkinson’s], whatever that may be, and I felt better since I wrote it down. This is something as a community - we need to do. And if you are able to, please try and do it. Small amounts add up,” Ian said.
