Research For Parkinson’s
One of the primary goals of the Foundation is to create awareness and understanding about Parkinson’s disease. Unfortunately, too many individuals are in denial about the disease or fear there is a stigma associated with it and delay seeking medical help. Early diagnosis and treatment can provide years that are virtually symptom-free.
People also need to realize that Parkinson’s is not a death sentence. Life expectancy is about the same as for people without the disease. Yes, your life will change, and no, there is not a cure for the disease – yet. With proper medication and therapy, however, symptoms can be managed and you can live a normal life. It will just be a new normal type of life.
