Local In Person Support Groups

 Connect and learn with others on the same journey in your community.
Support groups are a safe space to share and ask for help.
Support group facilitators lead monthly discussion groups in their communities. These groups are composed of patients, as well as their families and friends, who share the same disease diagnosis. The facilitator is responsible for welcoming members, distributing educational materials, encouraging participants to share information, keeping the group on topic, and providing a safe, supportive, and open environment for participants.

The Coleen Cunningham Foundation serves individuals and families dealing with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) and Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD).

Our Non Profit Foundation Board is composed of volunteers who each have a personal connection to Atypical Parkinsonism. Having experienced the frustration first hand and felt by so many families affected by Atypical Parkinsonism (difficulty getting a diagnosis, healthcare teams unfamiliar with the diseases, lack of information and support in the community) We are passionate about not wanting another family in Canada to face the same challenges. Our aim is to become a National Charity serving all Canadians affected by PSP, MSA and CBD.

No One Walks Alone!
