The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder of unknown cause that affects nearly 5 million individuals worldwide. While advancing age remains the greatest risk factor, PD can strike people even under age 30. The full spectrum of Parkinson’s disease is not well addressed by current treatments, which can only mask some symptoms as the underlying disease continues to worsen. Learn more here about the disease, how to cope with diagnosis, and why MJFF believes a cure is within reach.
