One of the most fascinating things about PD is that when you meet a fellow person that lives with the disease, you develop an instant connection. No matter the race, sex, national origin, ethnicity, socio-economic status, we come to realize that PD is the great equalizer. Until which time that we know the reasons for having this disease, we have a great responsibility to look out for each other, seek the best quality of life that we can for each other, and stand by, ready to lend an ear when all we need is someone to listen to us, pretty much knowing what the other is going through. On the global-front, knowing that people from other parts of the world share our vision, our dream, and our passion to effect change, the time has come to join together as one, pushing research forward to find better treatments and not just marginal results. It has been more than forty years since researchers brought us the “gold standard” in treatment, Levodopa. Perhaps it is time to express our views with a bit more conviction and say that we expect more than what is being done with the amount of money that is being funneled into research, not only in the U.S., but around the globe.
