Make an Impact – Just by Talking about Parkinson’s
We know that with over one million Americans living with Parkinson’s (17,000 of them in Colorado) it’s likely everyone we know, knows someone affected by Parkinson’s. Yet people don’t talk about PD; at least not the way they talk about Breast Cancer or Alzheimer’s. The more people talk about Parkinson’s the better off we will all be – individuals with Parkinson’s will know they are not alone and don’t have to feel isolated. More funding will be provided to organizations like the Parkinson Association so they can provide meaningful programs, services and education. Research-based organizations will also receive more funding so they can continue working to find a cure. In the end, it’s those who are living with Parkinson’s who will feel these positive impacts the most.
