Parkinson’s Pals is a Cleveland non-profit organization with the mission to fund research for a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Motivated by a common desire to actively “do something” after feeling helpless as family members and friends were diagnosed with Parkinson’s, a group of “pals” joined forces to raise funds and awareness.
Our Dollars Are Hard at Work…
- Donated $185,000 to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research which strategically targets resources to achieve maximum scientific impact.
- Funded Dr. Cameron McIntyre’s Neuromodulation Center at Case Western Reserve University that focuses on Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). These funds are critical as his team explores a deeper understanding of how our brains work and what is necessary to combat the effects of PD.
- Funded Dr. Hubert Fernandez at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Neurological Restoration so he can perform clinical research projects that are designed to immediately help Parkinson’s patients suffering from non-motor problems of this devastating disease.
- Donated to InMotion, a community-based nonprofit support center for persons with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
