Parkinson's Advocacy: The Difference it Makes

How to be an advocate:

  • Keep yourself educated and informed about Parkinson's disease.
  • Give a speech. It does not have to be fancy. Just tell your story!
  • Organize a fundraiser. People like to help with worthy causes.
  • Get involved with a support group.
  • Start a Parkinson’s support group if there is not one in your area.
  • Most importantly, do not hide — and never, ever be ashamed of your battle with Parkinson’s disease.
