Each year, thousands of people from all corners of the Parkinson's community — patients, family members, researchers, community Team Fox members and beyond — reach out to the Foundation and Michael, to share how they've been impacted by this work. This short film is a tribute and thank you to all those that keep us motivated each day with their words until a cure is found and we can close our doors for good.
