Petition The Cure Parkinson's Trust urge government to invest in a cure

More details

The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) and the Parkinson’s community urge the government to significantly increase investment into trials and treatments which delay, stop or reverse this crippling progressive condition.
-Living with Parkinson’s (PD) is a life sentence, physically and emotionally.The number of people with PD worldwide is set to double by the year 2030 dramatically increasing costs of care
-There is no standardised, objective, personalised measure of PD and no accurate method of evaluating clinical trials
-With new understanding of PD, it is unacceptable that current treatments only relieve symptoms temporarily, a more permanent and life-changing impact should be possible
-Funding is urgently needed to convert new science into breakthrough treatments
We must act NOW! Please support us. CPT has one bold aim, to find a cure for Parkinson’s. Founded by patients, it is passionate about involving patients in this number 1111816
