Parkinson’s affects more than 1.2 million people in Canada and the United States. There is no known cause or cure for the condition, although extensive research is currently underway. Symptoms include difficulty walking, weakness of voice, and tremors.
Funds raised through Plates for Parkinson’s ® help The Parkinson Society Maritime Region ease the burden and find a cure for Parkinson’s through support services, education, research and advocacy.
