MIAMI — A national campaign to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease will kick off this month, a nonprofit group focused on the disease said Monday.
The National Parkinson Foundation announced the launch of the Whatever It Takes to Beat Parkinson's campaign, timed to coincide with Parkinson's Awareness Month, in April. According to the foundation, the disease affects 1 million Americans.
"Every person with Parkinson's should know that they can help fight the impact of the disease," NPF president and CEO Joyce Oberdorf said. "It's never too late to see improvements in one's daily life. This campaign brings to light the many ways that anyone can take action and arms them with the resources they need to live their best life with Parkinson's."
