My goal when starting, which grew into,
is to continually serve the Parkinson’s community. 

Our surveys have always been and will always remain free. 

We will never charge anyone to participate in our surveys, and
we will never charge anyone a fee to download the results of our survey.

Because we are also committed to helping to fund the most
promising research to help find the cure to Parkinson’s,
we appreciate any donation to The Parkinson Alliance
