There are over one million people living with Parkinson's Disease in North America alone, some who are farther along in the disease process, some struggling with the burden of a new diagnosis. Helping to alleviate some of the disability that so many are faced with and to prevent others from having to embark down this path at all, is where my dedication now lies. "Designing a Cure for Parkinson's Disease" was initially created to conceptualize and implement strategies to raise funds directed towards research and awareness of Parkinson's Disease. It now also serves as a platform to educate and inspire those living with this disease to take charge of their lives, to live well with Parkinson's. With your support and generosity, we will be closer to finding a cure for this disabling neurological disease that affects one in one hundred adults over the age of 60 years. Unfortunately for the time being, many will face this diagnosis but together we can support much needed research that is diligently working towards making this a disease of the past.
