Over five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease, a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder whose symptoms typically progress from mild tremors to complete physical incapacitation. In the United States, an estimated 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. Current treatments mask symptoms but do not alter or slow disease progression.

As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research, MJFF has funded more than $700 million to speed a cure for Parkinson’s since 2000.
