Cancer Research fund scientists, doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner. They also provide cancer information to the public. Your donation will help our scientists get closer to finding a cure.
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time.
The number of people diagnosed with Parkinson's in the UK is about 145,000. That's around 1 adult in every 350.
People with Parkinson's don't have enough of the chemical dopamine because some of the nerve cells that make it have died.
There are lots of different treatments, therapies and support available to help manage the condition.
Our researchers are working hard to develop new and better treatments - and one day a cure.
My deepest sympathy to William and Sophie and their respective families on the loss of Penny, the most wonderfully warm and gentle person you could ever wish to meet. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Mr Alastair Torvaney
