Join Us This Parkinson's Awareness Month
2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Parkinson's disease (PD). The Michael J. Fox Foundation started with one urgent goal — find a cure and go out of business. While 200 years is far too long for patients and their loved ones to wait, there has been significant scientific progress in the last few decades alone and there is tremendous cause for optimism. This Parkinson's Awareness Month, learn how you can get involved and help us find a cure within our lifetime.
Share your story to raise awareness about the realities of Parkinson's. All month long, join the conversation on social and use #ParkinsonsAwareness to tell us what you're doing in April to help end PD.
