Callum’s story

Callum Tully was just 13 years old when he realised something was wrong with his father, Steve.

It was during a family holiday in Thailand that Steve became anxious and confused while navigating a busy night market. This was out of character for the photography teacher from Launceston, but understandable considering the unfamiliar location.

Upon returning home, Steve noticed a series of physical changes.

Two years later Steve was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Across Australia, around 100,000 people live with this degenerative neurological disorder and 38 new cases are diagnosed every day. Here in Tasmania, the number of people with Parkinson’s is around 1,200. There is currently no cure.

With your help, researchers at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research could reduce the symptoms of those living with Parkinson’s disease and extend their quality of life.

By supporting our research, you can help us improve health outcomes as well as fund the training and education of future scientists and related health professionals. Not just for Parkinson’s but for the major diseases affecting the Tasmanian community.

Please, give now and together we can picture a world without Parkinson’s.
