BENEFITING: MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH
As I train to run the 2011 NYC Marathon, please join me in the fight against Parkinson's disease. By supporting my Team Fox efforts, you are helping The Michael J. Fox Foundation achieve its mission to bring better treatments and, ultimately, a cure to people living with Parkinson's disease.
Why Team Fox?
- An estimated one million people in the United States and nearly five million worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease.
- In the United States, 60,000 new cases of PD will be diagnosed this year alone.
- There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. Currently available treatments temporarily mask symptoms while the disease continues to progress.
- The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda. MJFF is committed to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today. As the largest private funder of PD research worldwide, MJFF works to identify and prioritize scientific solutions that hold promise to improve patients' quality of life.
