Telling your story as part of our Faces of Parkinson's campaign is relatively easy.  As one of our Storytellers, you aim to show the personal side of Parkinson disease by sharing your own unique experience.

 

Who can be a Storyteller?

A Storyteller can be anyone who has been affected by Parkinson disease or who has been involved with Parkinson Association of Alberta.

  • A person with Parkinson disease
  • A care partner, family member or friend
  • A health care or other professional who interacts and/or works with those who have Parkinson disease
  • A volunteer, donor or sponsor who has been involved with Parkinson Association of Alberta

 

What kinds of stories are we looking for?

We’re looking for your story, your experiences, your inspiration.  Some ideas to help you get started are:

  • Your journey with Parkinson disease, be it as a whole or a piece of it (ie: DBS, dealing with the initial diagnosis, finding out about a loved one's diagnosis, etc)
  • How living with Parkinson's has inspired you to make a difference
  • How someone who is affected by PD inspires you
  •  How Parkinson Association of Alberta has made a difference

 

Storytellers can write or record (audio or video) their stories; and stories will be shared in the Faces of Parkinson’s section of our website; written stories may also appear in our quarterly magazine.  Please note that stories don’t have to be “stories” they can be poems, songs, or photo collages.  Storytellers are encouraged to submit as many pieces as they choose.
