Creations for Parkinsons
It had been a very long time since Ari started playing piano for the Creations Park. He did say that he found it pleasant to say yes when Barbie asked him to play piano for them. It also gives Ari a chance to sit with Fran Serandade, at the piano. "Yes," said Ari when I asked him if he would be playing for a long time. "as long as I can help by playing." Barbie sent me some information about Creations. I'm going to put it in the article.
I sat down with the information that Barbie had sent me. I poured through it, eager for the information about Parkinson's. The information started with a bold title: UNDERSTANDING PARKINSON’S. The information had plenty of information. It said:
"Parkinson’s disease is a chronic degenerative disorder involving the decrease of dopamine-releasing neurons in the central nervous system. Common symptoms upon early stages of Parkinson’s disease include increased rigidity of joints, shakiness and inability to walk or move quickly. Most early symptoms include the loss of movement-related abilities and skills. Later symptoms of Parkinson’s include cognitive and behavioral degeneration such as dementia.
According to research conducted by the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF), it is estimated that seven to 10 million people live with Parkinson’s disease worldwide. Studies from PDF also state that approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with the disease each year. The probability of a Parkinson’s diagnosis increases with age. As stated in the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation website, less than 4% of people under the age of 50 are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
The information was helpful so I thought I'd share it with the world about what the Creations is all about, which is people devoted to helping the others with Parkinson's.
