A Hair Affair for Parkinson’s is the highlight of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, offering participants the opportunity to visit an elite salon, while raising funds and awareness for Parkinson’s.
Established in 1989, A Hair Affair for Parkinson’s is a fun event that showcases local salons and their talented stylists. We are proud to include only the most prestigious salons.
A Hair Affair for Parkinson’s is entirely driven by volunteers, from the gifted stylists who donate their time and talent each year to the receptionists, shampooers and committee members that help the day run smoothly.
What is Parkinson Disease?
Every day across Southwestern Ontario, people with Parkinson’s wake up knowing they would experience symptoms such as tremors, slowness, stiffness, impaired balance, difficulty walking, trouble writing, fatigue and weakness.
For a person with Parkinson’s, each day can be a struggle with common tasks most of us take for granted. Medication can lessen the symptoms, but there is currently no cure for this debilitating, progressive, chronic neurological condition. One in ten sufferers is diagnosed before the age of forty.
