PD Information Websites
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.
The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) is a leading national presence in Parkinson’s disease research, education and public advocacy. We are working for the nearly one million people in the US who live with Parkinson’s by funding promising scientific research while supporting people living with Parkinson’s through educational programs and services. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has dedicated nearly $110 million to fund the work of leading scientists throughout the world and nearly $47 million to support national education and advocacy initiatives.
If you or a loved one is living with Parkinson’s disease, we encourage you to call our National HelpLine at (800) 457-6676, or Ask the Expert your questions about PD via email.
Spotlight YOPD is a new charity founded for no better reason than Young Onset Parkinson’s had somehow slipped through the net, certainly in the UK – with a perception that it’s a condition of the elderly.
WE HOPE to give those with YOPD the information, support and confidence to get the help they need for their own (very individual) life with PD. Our aim is to be an umbrella site for all things PD – and to work alongside and complement the other Parkie presence out there – from bloggers, to networks, to the big boy charities.
Because many are chasing the same pool of money, charities can traditionally be a bit insular. They have overheads, wages to pay and a head office to maintain. We are just a website with a few quirky ideas to get the cause noticed.
Information about Parkinson’s disease, articles from their newsletters, on-lines tests for tremor and clinical depression, as well as an Ask-The-Doctor forum.
