I received an e-mail from the Michael J. Fox Foundation about the "Fox Trials" which are clinical studies to find a cure or treatments for PD. The e-mail had a link to a research facility that is looking to do a DNA analysis on 10,000 participants, and they still need over 3,000 diagnosed PD patients. The participation is beyond easy. They will mail you a free kit, where you swab your mouth and mail it back in. 6-8 weeks later, you will receive your DNA analysis. There is no fee to participate.
I just ordered my kit. I'll do everything that I can to find a cure to this stupid Parkinson's Disease!!!!
If you want to check this out, here is the link:

One day I hope there is a cure for Parkinson's so all of us can get out there and enjoy life to its fullest.
