Nicole Jarvis MD Parkinson's Research Foundation

Please Donate and Help Find the Cure for Parkinson's Disease!!!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Hi! My name is Nicole Jarvis, and I am a 43 year old ObGyn physician, mother of 9 year old identical twin boys, and a patient with Young Onset Parkinson's Disease. As a doctor, I am passionate about finding cures for all diseases, and improving the quality of life for all patients suffering from chronic illness. As a YOPD patient, I am passionate about making my own contribution to finding the cure for the disease that affects me every day. In the state of Oklahoma, there are approximately 15,000 patients with Parkinson's Disease, and until 2012 there were NO fundraising events in the state designated to raise money to find a cure for PD. So, in December 2012, I hosted Oklahoma's first Team Fox event - a Winter Gala with silent and live auctions, seated dinner, and guest speakers such as OU Women's Basketball Coach Sherri Coale! It was a huge success - we raised over $115,000!!! Our 2nd Annual Winter Gala held on December 12th, 2013, and I am proud to say that we were able to raise over $180,000! Our 3rd Annual Winter Gala, featuring guest speaker NASA Astronaut Rich Clifford, was our biggest year yet! We raised over $240,000! In 2015, our 4th Annual Winter Gala featured guest speaker John Ryan, and we amazingly raised our total again to over $270,000!

In 2016 we hosted our 5th Annual Winter Gala featuring guest speaker Bret Parker, and we raised over $328,000 total! We donate locally for patient services each year, but in 2016 we were able to donate over $300,000 to Team Fox - 100% of which is used to fund the research we need for a cure!

Now, we are in full swing planning and fundraising for our 6th Annual Winter Gala to be held December 14, 2017!

Total Amount Lifetime Fundraising in support of the MJFF: $1,050,802.45

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.

Together, we can change this.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency. I’m one of thousands of people around the globe who are turning their passions into Team Fox fundraisers to help them speed a cure for Parkinson's. When you give today, 100% of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs.

Sincerely,
Nicole Jarvis MD
