Thank you for visiting my page! This year, my 14 y.o. daughter Grace, and I are participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's (MJFF) Tour de Fox Cycling Series for Parkinson's Research. To some of you it may come as a surprise that for the past two decades I have been living with Parkinson's and more recently, Dystonia. To the rest of you, this explains my periodic stumble and my softening voice. If it wasn't for Dr. Honey and Dr. Stoessl at UBC life would be drastically different for myself. Deep Brain Stimulation surgery is a great band-aid, but it is a band-aid. Your donations will one day find a cure.

An estimated six million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this.

MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of Tour de Fox Pacific Northwest ride proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Help me move a cure for Parkinson's disease forward by making a donation today.

Thank you for your support! - steve
