Mandurah Coastal Times - - FRONT PAGE -

MANDURAH woman Sue Edge does not have a choice that she has Parkin­son’s, but she does have a choice about what she does mov­ing for­ward.

This Sun­day is Parkin­son’s WA fundraiser Walk in the Park.

Ms Edge will be sell­ing mer­chan­dise such as bags, coast­ers and yoga pants printed with her de­signs and will make a do­na­tion to Parkin­son’s WA for each item sold.

“Since be­ing di­ag­nosed with Parkin­son’s in 2010, I have taken a pos­i­tive ap­proach and chan­nelled my en­ergy into cre­at­ing bright and colour­ful paint­ings,’’ she said.

“It’s great to be go­ing back to a Walk in the Park this year.

“This is part of my over­all and ongoing fundrais­ing for Parkin­son’s WA. I’m grate­ful for the help and sup­port they have given me with their Parkin­son’s Nurse spe­cial­ist ser­vice.

“Heather, who visits me at home, has been an amaz­ing sup­port on my jour­ney.’’

Parkin­son’s WA sup­ports peo­ple through­out WA with its unique com­mu­nity-based nurse spe­cial­ist ser­vice.
