Thank you so much Juney for sharing this with us. Your Mum would indeed be smiling.
It is something I do think about but have been so busy with other bodily issues. I guess it would be useful to include in my Will my desire for my brain to be donated?
I am not a medic or scientist but assume that diagnosing problems with our brains is one of the most complex in our bodies. I therefore don't feel too surprised at this news. Rather, relieved that your mother was brave enough to ask for this to happen and so help take research into PD and nigral degeneration.
I also wish that we could get something going so that there would be huge fund raising event, similar to the recent one for cancer and Children in Need. I'm thinking of writing to Simon Stevens, the new Head of NHS trying to urge him to add Parkinson's to his list of diseases needing urgent attention.
Thank you Juney for carrying out your Mums wishes and for talking to us.
