Chan Yin (Chairman of Hong Kong Parkinson’s Disease Association)

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1995. In the beginning, I was ignorant about this disease. Fortunately I participated in a rehabilitation course organized by Community Rehabilitation Network (CRN). l found this very helpful to my recovery.

Through the course I have acquainted with the self-help group “Hong Kong Parkinson’s Disease Association”, that I have been offered the opportunity to join the rank of mutual cares amongst persons with Parkinson’s Disease, and later becoming the Chairman of the Assocation.

CRN not only provided me with assistance in my journey towards recovery, but had also supported the development of our mutual-help organization in various aspects. Eventually, I had transcended from a patient to a community participant.
