The American Parkinson Disease Association to launch New Public Service Awareness Campaign
Date:9/3/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 03, 2014

"I have Parkinson’s, but Parkinson’s does not have me."

These compelling words are from Elke, a person living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and a participant in the American Parkinson Disease Association’s (APDA) Live with Optimism new Public Service Announcement (PSA). APDA will host two exclusive screening events, one September 11th in Newport Beach, California and the other September 17th in New York City. This screening event will also mark the launch of “$1 Million for 1 Million,” a public awareness and fundraising initiative designed to increase awareness of the disease and APDA. The campaign is meant to infuse critical dollars to support expanded research, health & wellness, and education programs that will combat this neurological movement disorder which touches 1 million lives in the United States alone and currently has no cure.

Elke’s words represent the spirit of optimism this nationwide PSA hopes to convey. The awareness campaign was developed to drive change in perceptions about Parkinson’s disease and raise awareness of APDA’s 50+ year mission to Ease the Burden – Find the Cure.

Every nine minutes a new person learns they have Parkinson’s disease.

“APDA has the potential – every nine minutes – to help another individual or family cope with PD by providing access to our education and wellness programs, connecting them with a support group or guiding them to find critical resources through our vast network of chapters and Information & Referral Centers throughout the country. Through this PSA and the “$1 Million for 1 Million” public awareness and fundraising campaign, we have the opportunity to truly help those impacted by PD to live with hope and optimism,” said APDA President & CEO, Leslie A. Chambers.

The September 11th APDA PSA screening will be held at The Port Theater, 2905 East Coast Highway,
