Announcing our Public Service Announcement

This month, APDA launched a new PSA, "Live with Optimism," nationwide. This exciting new initiative was developed to raise awareness and critical funds that will continue to Ease the Burden – Find the Cure for the 1 million people in the U.S. living with Parkinson's disease.

We hope you will take a moment to watch this important PSA and share it with all your friends and family.

Share Your Story!

Your story can mean the world to others! Regardless of your connection to Parkinson's disease, it could well be your personal journey that touches another person and ignites a sense of Optimism. Often we are most inspired when we see something of ourselves in another person's story.

Inspire Others

Support Us

Your generous support will help provide critical support and services to more than one million individuals nationally who are affected by Parkinson's disease today, as well as those who will need our help tomorrow.
