Over one million Americans live with Parkinson's disease, which is more than the combined number of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a chronic, degenerative, neurological disorder whose symptoms can progress from mild shaking to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States 60,000 new cases of PD will be diagnosed this year alone. Parkinson can strike at any age. One of the youngest diagnosed was only 15 years old (Juvenile Parkinsonism).
There is no cure for this neurological disease, but with breakthroughs in research we may be getting closer than ever to slowing the progression.
