It's a disease that claims the lives of more than 1.5 million Americans every year; more than Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Lou Gehrig's disease.
   
April is national Parkinson's awareness month and Monday morning Mary Freeman, President of the Parkinson Association of South Dakota joined us on the Morning show to tell us more about Parkinson's and about an upcoming event to help lift the spirits of those diagnosed.

Parkinson's Disease affects over 1.5 Million people in the United States, affecting many people including Actor Michael J. Fox, a front-runner advocating for Parkinson's Research.

Parkinson's Disease is a common progressive, disabling, neurological disorder that affects body movement such as the ability to walk, talk, write and swallow.

The cause of Parkinson's Disease is not clearly understood, nor is ther currently a cure.
