The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research

Parkinson’s Disease is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder which causes tremors, stiffness and slowness of movement which worsen over time. It may also cause cognitive impairment, anxiety and depression. The disease results from the death of cells in the brain which produce Dopamine.

My grandfather Sandy passed away from Parkinson’s disease. He was truly a role model for kindness and generosity, not to mention a lot of fun! He would stop and give money to almost every homeless person he saw on the street. He loved New York City and taught us the beauty of embracing everybody’s differences.

In his memory, we support The Michael J.Fox Foundation which is racing to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease by funding scientific research around the world. They educate and inform patients, their families and caregivers about the disease and help them find the necessary support.
