The late Tom Isaacs Apr 1968 – May 2017
Former Co-founder and President of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT)
It was Tom Isaacs description of living with Parkinson’s as feeling like being ‘boxed in’ that inspired the concept from which Cure3 was borne.
Tom, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the age of 27, was passionate about the Cure3 project from the outset and was incredibly proud of CPT’s involvement with this event.
“The Cure Parkinson's Trust (CPT) could not be more delighted to be involved with the Cure3 project. We have been bowled over by the extraordinary enthusiasm of the people involved. The success of the project is indicative of the wealth of talent and expertise of those who have defined and shaped the project from the outset.”
Lyndsey Isaacs, The Cure Parkinson’s Trust
Cure3 2018 is part of Tom’s legacy and is a tribute to his ability to inspire others to help find a cure. We at The Cure Parkinson’s Trust are excited to continue to be involved in this innovative partnership that uses art as a medium to help raise funds and awareness for Parkinson’s.
A diagnosis of Parkinson’s is life changing. It impacts every aspect of a person’s life - physically, mentally, behaviourally, and emotionally. Over 145,000 people in the UK are currently affected by Parkinson’s and 10 million people worldwide. We urgently need to find new treatments and events such as Cure3 are central to raising the funds needed to support our research and to raising awareness of the real impact of this terrible condition on people’s lives.
We are delighted that once again, the money raised from this wonderful event will be directed to funding clinical trials on treatments that have the potential to slow, stop, or reverse the progression of Parkinson's. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the enormous success of last year’s event and we hope that this project will become established as annual event.
