1HourMore

What would you do if you had one hour more a day? This is the simple question that lies at the heart of the ‘1HourMore’ storytelling project


A collection of 24 inspiring, real-life stories of people living with Parkinson’s has been released in a free digital e-book available in English, Italian, German and French.

The carefully curated set of stories, 1HourMore, was written by a team of authors who conducted in-depth interviews with Parkinson’s patients across Europe.

The resulting tales relate to a different aspect or phase of dealing with the disease, but are bound by the common emphasis on the value of time, and how even a single well-spent hour can help improve overall quality of life. Each chapter ends with practical tips related to the interviewee’s story.

Readers can submit their own story via the 1HourMore website, answering the key question: “What would you do if you had one hour more a day?”

The project – endorsed by the European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA) in partnership with pharmaceutical company, Zambon – aims to help raise awareness of Parkinson’s internationally, while offering patients and caregivers a useful resource full of inspiring stories and practical tips that may help them in their daily lives.

Knut-Johan Onarheim, president of EPDA, said: “Ongoing efforts are necessary to extend awareness of Parkinson’s disease in Europe. The ‘1HourMore’ project aims to increase awareness, taking a lead in the fight against Parkinson’s and providing support to patients so that they can find answers to their unmet needs.”
