Why Get Involved
The NPF is a wonderful organization and is doing great work to spread awareness of PD, with a focus on quality of life issues, so that patients are properly diagnosed, receive optimal treatment, and that they and their families and loved ones learn how to maximize their lives. We have seen many people, including John's parents, benefit from the NPF's great work.
The NPF continues to bring help and hope to the estimated one million people in the United States, four to six million worldwide, who are living with Parkinson’s disease. NPF is the only organization with a singular focus on improving the quality of care in Parkinson’s disease. NPF programs reach more than one million people a year through its network of 39 chapters, 43 Centers of Excellence and 900 support groups. Since 1982, NPF has funded more than $180 million in care, research and support services.

We are grateful for all contributions in any amount, and if you live in the area we'd love for you to come walk with us as part of Team Kozyak & Reno.
