At the age of 45, Larry Gifford received the diagnosis of Parkinson’s in 2017. Since then, he has emerged as an ardent advocate and activist for the cause. Co-founding the Global Alliance to End Parkinson’s, also recognized as PD Avengers, Larry has committed himself to raising awareness and striving for a world free of Parkinson’s. In October 2023, he underwent a significant DBS surgery, marking a pivotal moment in his journey.

Larry’s impact extends to various fronts—he serves as a cohost of the When Life Gives You Parkinson’s Podcast, is a member of the Michael J. Fox Foundation, and holds a position on the editorial board for the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease. Through these roles, Larry plays a vital part in advancing knowledge and understanding within the Parkinson’s community. His dedication to research is evident through his contributions, including co-authoring three published papers that offer valuable insights.

Transitioning from a distinguished 30-year career in radio, Larry currently calls Vancouver, B.C., Canada, home. Alongside his wife and partner-in-Parkinson’s, Rebecca, and their son Henry, Larry continues to make impactful strides in the Parkinson’s advocacy space.
