Help me raise money for Parkinson's research and treatment!

In fall of 2012, while planning a wedding, moving in with my then-fiance, and starting a new career, my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. At the time, I didn't want to believe it, and until recently, I was afraid to learn more about it, for fear of seeing a future for my dad I didn't want to accept. I have since come to terms with it and try to talk to my dad every day while I still can.

There isn't a cure for Parkinsons, and many of the treatments are expensive, and often only provide a temporary relief of the symptoms. I don't typically like doing these types of things, as I see it as begging for money. But even if I only raise $1, that's still $1 more that is going towards finding a better outcome for people like my dad.
