Parkinson’s disease, discovered more than 200 years ago, is the fastest growing neurological disease in the world. There is still no cure.
The PD Avengers are a global alliance of people with Parkinson’s, our partners and friends, standing together to demand change in how the disease is seen and treated.
Inspired by the book “Ending Parkinson’s Disease,” we are uniting one million voices by the end of 2022 to stand together on behalf of the Parkinson’s community.
Will you become a PD Avenger?
Why it matters:
🔴 Worldwide 10 MILLION people live with Parkinson’s
🔴 50 MILLION people live with the burden personally, or through a loved one
🔴 One in 15 people alive today will get Parkinson’s. The disease is found everywhere in the world. In almost every region the rate of Parkinson’s is increasing
🔴 Over the past 25 years, the number of people with Parkinson’s has doubled, and experts are predicting it will double again by 2040
🔴 The economic impact of the disease is disastrous for many individuals and their families
We have been quiet for too long. It’s time to act.
The PD Avengers is not a charity and they’re not looking for money. They are not trying to replace the work done by charities and health professionals across the world. Simply, they are looking to bring their collective voices together to demand change in how the disease is seen and treated.
Originally inspired by the book, “Ending Parkinson’s Disease,” The PD Avengers believe that more can and must be done. The 10 million people diagnosed worldwide, their families and friends who are impacted by this relentless condition deserve more.
