My story

[p]HI,[/p][p]I’m Anne, a 5ft tall 76 year old woman and I’m going to run the London Marathon in October. I’ll be raising money for [b]PARKINSON’S UK[/b] with every stride.[/p][p]Hopefully, I’ll also be using this opportunity to raise the awareness in both the public and the healthcare sector, of the need for a proper and realistic care plan for Parkinson sufferers who find themselves in hospital for reasons not connected to their Parkinson’s.[/p][p]My late husband was admitted to hospital for a heart operation that went very well indeed. However, treatment for his Parkinson’s by cardiac specialists was not a good idea. Whilst his heart recovered very well, his Parkinson’s condition went into massive decline as a result of Parkinson medication and care errors. In days his condition became critical, and he arrested. Although resuscitated he was left in a vegetative state for 2 years and 5 months. This would be a very unlikely outcome had he had the benefit of a Parkinson’s specialist included in his care team.[/p][p]I believe that for whatever reason a Parkinson sufferer is in hospital, a care plan should be developed with input by the Parkinson’s specialists, and they should be included as a part of the care team.[/p][p]5 years on I’m leaving the anger and negativity behind and replacing it with positivity, action and hopefully change. A marathon is a tough challenge for a soon to be 77year old little woman, but my motivation is to help drive change in the hospital care of Parkinson patients and hopefully by achieving this also have closure after the tragic death of my husband Keith[/p][p][b]THANK YOU[/b] for reading my story. With your support, Parkinson’s UK can make these changes a reality[/p]
