This month alone, 5000 Americans will hear the words, "You have Parkinson's Disease." The words can feel like a death sentence. It is not. Treatments, resources, and support are available to those diagnosed with Parkinson's, and the friends and family who love and care for them. The Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance (PMDAlliance) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to improving the everyday lives of people impacted by Parkinson's through education and support.
