Parkinson Support Group
Share the news about the Parkinson support group at Kennesaw United Methodist. We invite people with Parkinson's disease, and their families, to attend a Parkinson's support group meetings at Kennesaw United Methodist Church, 1801 Ben King Road, Kennesaw, GA.
With more than four and a half million diagnosed Americans, Parkinson's is one of the most common diseases of the nervous system. It affects more people than Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Lou Gehrig's diseases combined. While the incidence is highest in people over fifty years of age, there is a significant number of people diagnosed in their 30's and 40's. Parkinson's disease requires adjustment in almost every aspect of a person's life. Support groups provide help and information to facilitate living with Parkinson's , to obtain educational materials, to participate in programs and to share experiences in a comfortable environment. Our group is an affiliate of the American Parkinson's Disease Association, the largest grass roots organization providing funds for research and patient and caregiver education and support.
