The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research needs to hear from you.
We’ve teamed up with biopharmaceutical company UCB, to create the “Tell Us Your Story” Facebook campaign, a platform for the Parkinson’s community to share their personal experience with the disease while raising dollars for high-impact research.
“Many people with Parkinson’s keep their story to themselves,” said Carey Christensen, a Parkinson’s patient advocate and member of the Foundation’s Patient Council. “But speaking from my experience, sharing your story brings an amazing feeling of empowerment.”
Today through December 31, participants can access the “Tell Us Your Story” application through the MJFF Facebook page and in 500 words or less share with their own social circle how Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects their lives. To aid in encouragement, UCB is generously donating $5 for every "like" and "share" your story receives, up to $60,000, to The Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Even better: Every donation captured through the “Tell Us Your Story” campaign will be matched dollar-for-dollar as part of the Foundation’s Brin Wojcicki Challenge, which doubles new and increased giving through year-end, making the total potential contribution $120,000.
