Jon Stamford

Scientific & Advocate Communication Coordinator The Cure Parkinson's Trust (United Kingdom)

image004Dr Jon Stamford is a scientist and writer who at the age of 49 was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Facing an incurable disease, a mortgage, a full time job, and three teenage children to raise, it would have been easy to feel overwhelmed. Instead Jon made a shift and relied on humour to address and experience his life. Dr. Stamford will be speaking about not only his experience with Parkinson’s but also will address his online journal, Slice of Life, a interactive experience that help patients find humour, determination and laughter in each day.
