About Parkinson’s Foundation 

The Parkinson’s Foundation is working toward a world without Parkinson’s disease. Formed by the merger of the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) and the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF), the mission of the Parkinson’s Foundation is to invest in promising scientific research that will end Parkinson’s disease and improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s, and their families, through improved treatments, support and the best care.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects nearly one million people in the US and over 10 million worldwide. Parkinson’s is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s and is the 14th leading cause of death in the US. It is associated with a loss of motor control (e.g., shaking or tremor at rest and lack of facial expression) as well as non-motor symptoms (e.g., depression and anxiety). Although promising research is being conducted, there is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease.

The Parkinson's Foundation calls special attention to Parkinson's during April, which is recognized Parkinson's Awareness Month, and encourages the community join us in working #Together4PD by visiting our website www.parkinsonsfoundation.org.
