Parkinson's disease is a type of dementia, related to Alzheimer's disease and underexposed health issues in the region. People with Parkinson's have great difficulty controlling their movement because nerve cells in their brain have died. They can have a tremor or stiffness that makes it frustrating or sometimes impossible to do everyday activities, such as ... eating, smiling, getting dressed or even picking up and playing with their kids.
If people understand Parkinson's better they can help reduce anxiety in public situations and give control back to people with the condition.
