ILLUMINATE ... Throwing Light on Parkinson’s

This book has been published to bring together the full range of wonderful designs that very kind celebrities and well-known personalities have taken the time to create in the cause of Parkinson’s … or rather in the cause of funding research into finding a cure for Parkinson’s.

The drawings were requested as part of the ILLUMINATE campaign originated by Becky Hurd, who developed young onset Parkinson’s at the age of 29. Becky’s ILLUMINATE campaign is designed to raise public awareness of the condition, particularly in young people, as well as helping to raise funds for research. Each design was used just once to create a unique candle holder. This was then offered for auction with all proceeds going to The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.

We hope you will enjoy these very individual drawings, and we would like to thank Becky and all those who have so very kindly helped us to ‘throw more light on Parkinson’s’

Thank you so much for this book. I was diagnosed with Parkinson's In 2008 at age 57. That is so nice all those celebrities contributed their artwork to raise awareness of PD. I, too, have a book here in Blurb bookstore showing my artwork and poetry "From Darkness To Light" by Denise F. Fulmer. Hopefully if we all pull together we can find a cure for PD.
