I am sorry to hear about your friend’s medical problems.  He appears to be suffering from multiple problems. You could search for trials on Parkinsonism and reach out to these people. They could guide you to a research center in Canada. You could also ask his doctor to provide information regarding clinical trials in Canada. You could also reach out to Parkinson Society Canada as it funds research in Parkinsonism. Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
