About Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is a devastating reality for over one million Americans. It is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, and the 14th leading cause of death in the country. Symptoms of the condition range from tremors and lack of facial expression to depression and anxiety.
Sadly, there is no known cure, and nearly 90,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Not only does this life-altering condition leave sufferers robbed of many of their abilities, it also has drastic financial and emotional consequences for families and caregivers.
