PODCAST of LIVE show on Radioparkies.com 2/29/21: Stories of Vicki Dillon and Gaynor Edwards
Vicki was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (YOPD) at 35.
Vicki is passionate about speaking about living with Parkinson's and has travelled the word telling her powerful, sad, funny, disturbing, medical-history-making and ultimately heart warming story in her own unique style.
Life with Parkinson's is never boring and Vicki's aim is to educate and inspire you - with laughter, tears and brain surgery along the way.
Gaynor received a diagnosis of YOPD at 42. “‘You have Parkinson’s.’ Those are three words no one wants to hear.”
After searching for support, and realizing there wasn't an organization that focused on Young Onset PD,
Gaynor founded Spotlight YOPD (a registered charity in the UK)
