TORONTO, ON, March 31, 2016 – Parkinson’s changes everything. It is a disease of the brain that touches almost every aspect of daily living, including: movement, mood, speech, eating and drinking, sleep, and cognitive changes. It worsens over time, robbing a person of independence through increasing complications, and ultimately resulting in premature death. There is no known cause or cure for Parkinson’s disease.
