Five million people worldwide, including my wonderful mother, are living with Parkinson's disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease.
But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this. Team Fox is The Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) grassroots community fundraising program. Its members include thousands of people worldwide who generate funds and awareness for Parkinson's disease research. All funds raised through Team Fox go directly to MJFF to advance its mission to accelerate the delivery of life-changing treatments, and ultimately a cure, to people with Parkinson's disease.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation is honored by your support. Since 2001, the Foundation has maintained an uncompromising pace, strategically targeting our resources to achieve maximum impact on patients' lives, funding work on over 100 therapeutic targets to the tune of more than $289 million to date. MJFF also understands that patients are the key to a cure and is actively engaged with the PD community.
