What is Parkinson's Disease?
Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease, which means that the structure and functions of neurons in the brain begin to fade away, sometimes killing some neurons. It currently affects 1 million people in America and is currently incurable. The disease had been made famous by steamed boxer and activist, Muhammed Ali, who was diagnosed in 1984, three years after he retired, and Michael J. Fox, whose booming career took a sharp turn to more activism around the disease.
