Let's Find a Cure for Parkinson's


Every hour in the UK two people are told they have Parkinson’s, a diagnosis which brings a future of uncertainty living with this neurodegenerative condition. It can affect people of any age and background and there is currently no cure.

We created the film ‘Let’s Find a Cure for Parkinson’s’ to inform audiences unfamiliar with the difficulties of living with Parkinson’s, and challenge preconceptions about this disease. The film focuses on some of the symptoms and the impact Parkinson’s has on patients and their families. We felt it was important to break with the stereotypical view of Parkinson’s as a condition which only affects the elderly; Parkinson’s affects men and women, young and old from all walks of life.

The film asks patients to picture their lives free from Parkinson’s and describe what a cure would mean to them. Finding a cure for Parkinson’s is The Cure Parkinson’s Trust’s sole focus, and every year we invest in pioneering research around the world which has the potential to slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s.

‘Let’s Find a Cure for Parkinson’s’ has the biggest impact with new audiences at events where we also present our latest research developments and breakthroughs, concluding with an encouraging and optimistic summary of our work. This inspires people to support our work so we can continue funding ground-breaking research that will consign Parkinson’s to medical history.
