A weekly roundup of our favourite Parkinson’s quotes

 

“We aren’t victims, we are strong, amazing people who just happen to have a crummy disease, and we want a cure to that disease”

– Kate Matheson, newly appointed national ambassador at Shake It Up in Australia

 

“Giving up is not an option and no matter what kind of obstacle you must face – face it with all you’ve got”

– Tore Henriksen, inspired by his father’s battle with Parkinson’s, completed a gruelling Ironman race in Lanzarote to raise funds and awareness

 

“How are they going to see me — as the colleague as I have always been, or as the patient I always will be? That was the beginning of my transition”

– Alice Lazzarini, a Parkinson’s researcher who was diagnosed with the disease

 

“More comprehensive care not only means a better quality of life for people with Parkinson’s, but also markedly reduced healthcare costs”

– Bas Bloem, after signing an agreement to lay the foundation for bringing innovative Dutch healthcare programme ParkinsonNet to the US
