National Parkinson Foundation- Moving Day!

“Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly in most people. If you or someone you know has  (PD) you are not alone.  In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of PD are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD. The Center for Disease control rated complications from Parkinson’s disease as the 14th leading cause of death in the United States. Worldwide, it is estimated that four to six million people suffer from the condition. There is hope, however, as scientists work towards a cure and make progress in identifying the best treatment options for patients”.
