Welcome to My PDF Champions Home Page:
As a Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) Champion, I am working to raise funds to improve the lives and futures of people touched by Parkinson’s and to ultimately find a cure.
Both my father and father-in-law had Parkinson's Disease. Although the disease presented itself differently in them, the devastating end result was the same. There are several people in our community dealing with their own diagnosis of the disease so it is time to fight for a cure or better yet, a prevention.
Did you know that nearly one million people in the United States are living with Parkinson’s disease? I am organizing my PDF Champions event in honor of these individuals and their loved ones who are impacted each day by Parkinson’s.
Parkinson’s disease is chronic neurological disease, for which there is currently no cure. But promising research is being conducted. Since its founding in 1957, PDF has dedicated over $100 million to fund the work of leading scientists throughout the world and over $42 million to support national education and advocacy programs.
Every donation really does make a difference in advancing PDF’s mission. Please help me reach my goal by making a donation today.
More than 81 percent of PDF’s funds go directly toward its programs. PDF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all gifts are tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your support!
