The Search for a Cure Starts With Fundraising | 8
In this episode of When Life Gives You Parkinson’s, I talk to people behind several Parkinson’s fundraisers, learn about their experiences with the disease and meet the researchers who benefit from the funds raised. I also let you follow me into Dr. Farrer’s lab as I donate my DNA.
Follow me, Larry Gifford
