Message from Captain John
Welcome to the Take Big Steps team page! Did you know that 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are diagnosed each year in the US alone. Add that to the one million people who currently have PD, and you end up with a lot of people who need your support. With the aging population these numbers will increase. Your support will help us continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinsons’s disease.

Some questions you may want to ask captain john.
Why is the team named Take Big Steps? With Parkinson’s simple things like walking no longer come naturally. You have to think about it, Narrow spaces are difficult to navigate. Sometimes I just freeze when going through a doorway. Sometimes when I tell myself to take big steps I can start moving. Some times it doesn?t work unless someone else says it. Sometimes it doesn?t work at all.
