Highlighting Community Voices
Together, They're Navigating Uncertainty
Eleven years ago, when Ana María Tamayo’s husband Ray was diagnosed with Parkinson’s by one of the top neurologists in Lima, Peru, where they live, he told them, “Don’t tell anybody. People won’t understand and you don’t want them to look at you differently.”
We’re an independent, national nonprofit on a mission to empower people impacted by movement disorders with the tools and meaningful connections they need to thrive today. We provide free resources to the entire Movement Disorder Care & Support Ecosystem©—to people living with the disease, care partners and adult children, support group leaders, and healthcare providers—because we all do better when everyone’s empowered.
We believe in expanding access to high quality, expert-driven, deep-diving online and in-person programs, including offering a vast on-demand video library. We create courageous spaces for you to connect with community, cultivate positive change, and spark joy.
We’re here to navigate the waves of a movement disorder together, bringing clarity and life-giving solutions. You are not alone.
