Jennifer Stafford Farrow
In March 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Four years later, lifted by love and encouragement from my family, friends, and medical support team, I am staying strong! The remarkable individuals at the MJFOX Foundation have been by my side since my early diagnosis. I believe the MJFF will be central to finding a cure in my lifetime.
An estimated 6 million people worldwide live with Parkinson's disease (PD), and I'm inviting you to join me in helping accelerate a cure. I am taking part in the Los Angeles Fox Trot on March 20th at the ROSE BOWL.
My goal is to raise at least $5,000 for The Michael J. Fox Foundation while sharing the importance of finding a cure for PD.
Parkinson's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. Its symptoms often change over time and affect movement, facial expression, speech, and memory. Currently available treatments only temporarily mask symptoms while the disease continues to progress.
Through an aggressively funded research program and robust public policy efforts, The Michael J. Fox Foundation seeks to speed scientific progress toward better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's. And they are making progress, with more therapies in development than ever before.
Together we can accelerate this vital work. Please join me in reaching my personal goal of $5,000. Your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law and will be maximized for the most significant benefit for patients and families: 100 percent of Fox Trot proceeds go directly to the Foundation's pursuit of a cure. Donate online to help make a difference in the lives of those with PD at https://runwalk.michaeljfox.org/losangeles/jsfarrow.
Thank you for helping move us toward the day we end Parkinson's for good.
