Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological condition that primarily causes tremor, stiffness and slowness of movement. Each person with Parkinson’s can experience very different symptoms, referred to by James Parkinson (the man who gave his name to the disease) as the ‘shaking palsy’.
Most people associate Parkinson’s Disease with the elderly, but this is far from the case. Bryn Williams was 36 when he was diagnosed and after embarking on his own voyage of discovery to learn about the disease that had forced itself upon him, set up a website called Wobbly Williams.
Wobbly Williams is for people looking for information about Parkinson’s Disease and rather than being all doom and gloom, Bryn’s aim is to harness a positive attitude towards the disease, helping those suffering from Parkinson’s Disease to use laughter, hope and positivity to manage their condition.
Alongside Funding Neuro, the research based sister organisation, they organise events throughout the year to raise money to advance research that they believe will make the difference for those suffering from Parkinson’s.
