World Parkinson’s Day is taking place today, Thursday 11 April 2019.
Andrew explains, "Every hour, two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s, with around 145,000 people in the UK living with the condition.
"The aim of the 'Parkinson's Is' campaign is to increase understanding of Parkinson’s and to raise awareness of the impact it can have on people living with the condition along with their families and friends."
