Parkinson's Disease: Search for a Cure

Parkinson's is a disease of the central nervous system that affects as many as one million Americans. While Parkinson's is generally identified in older people, an estimated 10% of patients report symptoms before the age of 40. Doctors are able to offer a variety of medications and surgical procedures to control the symptoms and help improve quality of life, but the root cause of the disease is still unknown. The organizations listed below are working to find a cure, and they need your help.
