Questions & Answers

What is Parkinson's Disease?

Parkinson's disease (PD) affects millions of people in the world. It is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, meaning that it continues and worsen over time. Parkinson's involves a loss of nerve cells in the brain, called neurons. Neurons produce dopamine, a chemical that tells our brains how to move. As Parkinson's Disease progresses, the amount of dopamine produced in the brain decreases, leaving a person unable to control movement normally. While, there are treatment options such as medication and surgery to manage its symptoms, there is currently no cure for it. Read on more on the Parkinson's Disease Foundation page.

What type of nail designs can I do to show my support?

  • A red tulip is the worldwide symbol of Parkison's.
  • A blue ribbon is the symbol of the National Parkinson's Foundation

Along with raising awareness, what else can I do to help?

You can make a donation to the Parkinson's Disease foundation. Your donation will go to support the wonderful research they're doing to find the cause and a cure for Parkinson's Disease.

What happens after I participate?
