Parkinson’s Global Project Launched To Fund Research and Support Daily Life

Community

A new CD is in the works to use the power of music to help support people living with Parkinson’s and fund education and research for the disease. Karl Sterling who’s been diagnosed with Parkinson’s started the Parkinson’s Global Project with his son, who’s a doctor with a PhD in Parkinson’s brain imaging. The goal for the project is to fill the funding gap between  the medical portion of Parkinson’s but also helping people function through everyday life.

Sterling used to be a drummer and now he’s teaming up with other nationally-known musicians to record a CD. The songs on the disc were chosen by people living with Parkinson’s to send a message to other’s dealing with the disease. “The idea is you’re not alone and we are here to help,” says Sterling.
