‘May May’ Ali Proud of Working with Parkinson Alliance

Maryum "May May" Ali is proud of her many accomplishments since 2002 while working with the Parkinson Alliance and Parkinson's Unity Walk.

It is being said she actually has good reasons for being proud on the evening before the 19th annual Parkinson's Unity Walk (PUW) could start. She finds working with the alliance very important as the same raises funds, which help identify the disease's cause and an effective treatment for the same.

The walk's national celebrity spokesperson's father was also diagnosed with the disease back in 1984. She said that the money helped many people like him.

As per the findings, Parkinson's disease is degenerative and is a chronic and progressive disorder. One in every 100 people of age 60 years and above is diagnosed with the same and develops a resting tumor, becoming rigid. Loss of expression of facial muscles is also developed in the disease's advanced stages.

It has been found that the Unity Walk is a biggest grassroots event that helps Parkinson's disease research in the US.

"It's important to get educated-there is a buffet of resources available to families that can immensely improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson's and their families also", Ali was quoted as saying.
