Parkinson's Disease - Fighting for a Cure Series
MIAMI. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Parkinson’s disease is a chronic disease of the central nervous system causing people to have shaking, muscle stiffness and difficulty moving and speaking.

It can provide fast and dramatic results.

BALTIMORE. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- More than one million Americans struggle with Parkinson’s disease, a progressive disease of the nervous system that eventually limits mobility and speech.
