Welcome! Parkinson disease is a neurodegenerative disease resulting in the loss of dopamine production. Dopamine is the neuro-transmitter responsible for aiding in body movements. Symptoms include slowness of movement, tremor, muscle stiffness and postural instability. To date, there is no cure.
The mission of the Wisconsin Chapter of the APDA is to “Ease the Burden, to Find the Cure”. We do this by providing support and empowering people with Parkinson’s disease, their families, and caregivers through education, fundraising for research, sponsoring support groups, and networking with resource and referral agencies involved in the care of people with Parkinson’s disease throughout Wisconsin.
Join us for the 5th Annual APDA Wine Tasting at Blackhawk Country Club in Madison on Saturday, February 22, 2014. Tickets are $60 each, and include the tasting, silent auction, musical entertainment, and hors d’ouevres. Register today at http://apdaparkinson.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=704.
This bracelet was designed specifically for the Wisconsin Chapter of the APDA to honor people with Parkinson’s and their families. Specifically designed by a granddaughter of a person with Parkinson’s, the bracelet reflects the strength, support and colors of Parkinson disease.
