The entire Parkinson Estrie team, whether it be the board of directors, the staff or our ambassador, are all dedicated people who are directly or indirectly affected by Parkinson's disease and who actively collaborate to improve the quality of lives of people with the disease and their loved ones.
I got involved in this cause out of solidarity with my father, André L’Espérance, who has the disease. When I told him about the possibility of being ambassador for Parkinson Estrie, he encouraged me to accept the role of promoting the essential mission of Parkinson Estrie.
It is a very important organization for my family and me and it is very clear to me that the goal of Parkinson Estrie, to improve the quality of life of people with the disease as well as their caregivers and their families, is essential. In recent years, I have seen firsthand the quality of the services offered and all the good that Parkinson Estrie does in its community.
One of the things I admire the most is the fact that Parkinson Estrie has been able to create a community of people affected, directly or indirectly, by the disease, in which people can share their experiences and participate in activities to increase their well-being.
