  2. Hi..i just want to thank you for doing a wonderful job… I’m from Leicester, but now been in Cape Town 16 years.. In that time my family told me that my Mum has Parkinson’s..i was very upset and worried as we are a very close family.. I didn’t know Much about Parkinson’s… So I would ask my brothers all the time how is mum doing? They would reply she is fine… But I noticed the difference every year when they came to visit me…. At first I thought she was getting worse each year, but with her visits to hospital every six months. This year when she arrived I was Very pleased with her.. She looked stronger… In herself… My mum is the best in this world so thank you for all your research…. Matthew Bryan…X
