Parkinson Awareness Month
Together, we can end Parkinson’s. But we need you on our team. Take action during April, Parkinson’s Awareness Month, and all year long.
Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease. Movement is normally controlled by dopamine, a chemical that carries signals between the nerves in the brain. When cells that normally produce dopamine die, the symptoms of Parkinson’s appear.
Currently there is no cure. You can live with Parkinson’s for years. The symptoms are treated with medication. Some people with Parkinson’s may benefit from surgery.
