Parkinsons When Your Body Turns Against You

Parkinson’s Society of Canada is using a national advertising campaign to reveal the side of Parkinson’s that the public does not see, the inner struggle that people with Parkinson’s deal with every day. “Nothing’s easy when your body turns against you”. The phone rings. But getting to the phone becomes a fight for the Parkinsons sufferer in this commercial.
