(SARASOTA, FL) – Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s received a grant of $1,000 from The MSC Foundation to help provide over 5,000 Parkinson’s Disease Resource Guides at no cost to the local Parkinson’s community.
MSC Foundation has helped underwrite printing and distribution of over 20,000 Parkinson’s Resources Guides since 2017. This 63-page Resource Guide helps alleviate some of the initial fear and anxiety experienced upon receiving a diagnosis of Parkinson’s. It’s important that people with Parkinson’s and their caregivers know they are not alone in their journey and that journey starts with finding the right care, support and information to help them become self-sufficient in managing every aspect of the disease: physically, psychologically and emotionally.
A Parkinson’s disease diagnosis can be overwhelming, as is the amount of information available on the internet that often leaves a senior adult asking, “Where do I begin?” and - most importantly – “What information do I really need to help me and my family, starting today?”
The Parkinson’s Resource Guide provides comprehensive information that empowers people with Parkinson’s and their caregivers to live their best life with determination and hope in a supportive community.
There are approximately 10,000 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s in the communities served by Neuro Challenge Foundation. Although the Resource Guide is available online, many people prefer and request a printed copy, and these Guides are distributed by mail and through healthcare affiliate locations.
“The initiatives and growth of Neuro Challenge are possible due to the generous support from the community. This continued partnership with MSC Foundation will provide essential service to the local Parkinson’s community today,” said Robyn Faucy-Washington, CEO of Neuro Challenge Foundation.
