April is Parkinson's Awareness Month

Micael J. Fox Foundation

April is Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month. Parkinson's Disease is a degenerative neurological disorder which, at present, cannot be reversed or stopped. In recent years, research has created improved treatment and is getting closer to a cure every day. The Michael J. Fox Foundation has done a great job in raising awareness, funding research and providing resources to support PD patients and researchers. My father died of complications related to PD, so for me, this personal.

When I began what I called 'The Project' in the Fall of 2011, in addition to raising momey for tyje players involved in the production of what became Take A Chance, part of the funds raised went to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Now it is a year later and while we are closer, but funding for research is still needed.I am making an offer for this month to try and help out. Please consider sending the Fox Foundation a donation. If you do, contact me and I'll get you an MP3 copy of Take A Chance. If you don't want the music, please consider a donation anyway.

ps feel free to share this or do something to in your own way to help make Parkinson's a part of history..
