Tell Congress to Support the National Plan to End Parkinson’s Act
I am writing today as your constituent and a member of the Parkinson’s community. I would like you to co-sponsor the National Plan to End Parkinson’s Act (H.R.2365/S.1064).
The National Plan to End Parkinson’s Act will create a public-private advisory council (accountable to Congress through biannual reporting) that will:
- ensure coordination across the federal government;
- evaluate current federal programs related to Parkinson’s;
- create a national plan to prevent and ultimately cure Parkinson’s; and
- reduce the financial impact of the disease on families and the federal government.
One million Americans live with Parkinson’s — it’s the second most common neurological disorder after Alzheimer’s, and the fastest-growing neurological disease. 90,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every year, and there is no treatment to slow, stop, or reverse disease progression. Parkinson’s costs the U.S. $52 billion dollars a year.
