Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world, and currently there is no cure.
Anyone can get Parkinson’s, young or old. In the UK, around 145,000 people are already living with Parkinson’s.
Every hour, two more people are diagnosed. That’s the same as 18,000 people every year. 1 in 37 people alive today will be diagnosed with Parkinson’s in their lifetime.
