The four organizations listed above represent Alzheimers, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and Huntington’s disease, which are all in the category (family) of neurodegenerative diseases. The term neurodegeneration is a combination of two words – “neuro,” referring to nerve cells and “degeneration,” referring to progressive damage.
My dream is to unite these organizations and create a NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASE DAY, like Rare Disease Day. If I’m going to dream, I’m going to dream BIG!
Have a good day! Therese
