Former MLB Player Dave Parker Shares His Perspective on Parkinson's Disease

Final thought: Researchers need your help to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's is not a fatal disease. But it is devastating. The disease often leaves patients feeling isolated and alone. As the disease progresses to its advanced stages, the patient experiences difficulty performing certain tasks, like walking and feeding themselves. Parkinson's disease can disrupt a patient's, and their caregiver's, daily routine. While researchers are attempting to search for a cure, there needs to be more awareness and more education surrounding it. More awareness will help bring more funds and support for research.
