Our hero this week is Mimi, who bravely fundraised for Shake It Up while preparing for DBS surgery. Mimi collected funds in the lead up to shaving her head for the treatment.
With the help of her generous friends and family, Mimi raised $4,389 for Parkinson’s research. A big thank you to Mimi and her supporters for their efforts.
We spoke with Mimi to find out more about her story.
What drives your commitment to a cure for Parkinson’s?
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in July 2020 and in September 2020 my brother passed away from Parkinson’s. This has impacted on our family significantly.
