Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition - it can be successfully treated with a range of therapies but it is currently incurable. 145,000 people in the UK alone are living with Parkinson’s (1 person in every 350). This is expected to increase by 18% by the year 2025 and is set to almost double by 2065.
It is estimated that 1 person in 37 will receive a diagnosis of Parkinson’s during their lifetime.
The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) has one bold aim – to cure Parkinson’s. CPT funds innovative and pioneering research around the world which is dedicated to finding new treatments that can slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s.
