Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

EVERY STEP COUNTS AT THE 23RD PARKINSON'S UNITY WALK ON APRIL 22ND IN CENTRAL PARK

April 19, 2017



Thousands of participants including patients, caregivers, family, and friends, are expected to walk together in the largest grassroots fundraiser for Parkinson's disease research in the United States.

The 23rd Parkinson's Unity Walk will be held on April 22, 2017 in New York City's Central Park.

"Together, one day we will achieve our shared goal of ending Parkinson's disease. There have been advancements in research and therapies, and the Unity Walk is a way to raise funding for research and keep the progress going," explained Martin Tuchman, Chairman of The Parkinson Alliance.

Parkinson's disease is a chronic, degenerative, neurological disorder, affecting over one million people in the country. 60,000 new cases (one person every nine minutes) are diagnosed each year.

Since the Unity Walk's inception in 1994, it has funded hundreds of research studies. For information on registration or donations, visit their website: www.UnityWalk.org.
