THE STORY:

Parkinson's is a debilitating disease of the brain that leads to shaking (tremors) and difficulty with walking, movement, and coordination. As many as one million Americans live with Parkinson's disease, which is more than the combined number of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig's disease.

Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year, and this number does not reflect the thousands of cases that go undetected.

An estimated seven to 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease.

Incidence of Parkinson’s increases with age, but an estimated four percent of people with PD are diagnosed before the age of 50.

My father was diagnosed with PD when he was 40.  That was in 1989.  A failed experimental brain surgery attempting to alleviate some of his symptoms in 2006 actually worsened his condition.  Research for PD needs improvement.  I would like to take this opportunity to help, and to ask others to do so as well, by giving to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
