Finding a Cure!

Izzy Neves

Hello Friends!

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my page and for your interest in getting involved! As many of you already know, it is a passion and desire of mine to find effective treatments (and a cure!) to Parkinson's Disease.

As some background information, Parkinson's Disease is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder that impacts more than 10 million people worldwide. And nearly one million people in the United States alone will be living with Parkinson's by the year 2020.

There is currently no known cure for Parkinson's Disease, but through your support of Team Fox, this can be changed!

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 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs.

It would mean the absolute world to me to see my community get involved in the search for a cure. I have previously, through the help of my medical internship, had the opportunity to educate different communities on Parkinson's Disease and the ways in which people can get involved. Education is the key to further knowledge so it is an absolute goal of mine to continue to spread awareness and help others get involved! Maya Angelou, an incredibly fierce activist, once said "When you do nothing you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better."

So I challenge all of you to get involved. To be a change that you want to see. No matter how grim circumstances may be and no matter what challenges may come, hope, love and research are the tools necessary for making a difference. So here's to finding a cure!


Thank you so much,
Izzy Neves
