About Camp Brian

Camp Brian is a grass roots effort which was inspired by our friend, Brian Camp, who was diagnosed at age 38. Brian’s disease is progressive and like many with early onset Parkinson’s, his ability to earn a living was compromised in the prime of his career while his children were still quite young.

We came to learn that the emotional and financial challenges for early onset patients can be as debilitating as the physical effects of the disease. Our goal is to help Brian and other early onset patients by providing, assistance, resources and financial grants to help ease some of the additional burden these individuals and families face in their journey through Parkinson’s.
