Parkinson’s disease affects nearly one million people in the United States. Today there is no cure and the cause of Parkinson’s is unknown. Because it is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, the symptoms only get worse with time. Parkinson’s occurs when there is a malfunction and death of important nerve cells in the brain. The death of these nerve cells increases the amount of dopamine in the brain, leaving the person unable to control their muscle movements.

Due to this chronic disease, the Michael J. Fox Foundation is working towards a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improved therapies for patients. The foundation focuses on specific areas of progress. Such as speed treatments to slow the progression, treat the symptoms, and avoid the side effects of drugs treating Parkinson’s. Since 2000, The Michael J. Fox Foundation has funded more than $700 million to find a cure. With your help and donations to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the success of helping patients is the number one goal. Mention this article when shopping this weekend and join the fight to finding a cure!
