To the Editor:

This April, I urge our neighbors to take part in Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Nearly one million Americans live with Parkinson’s and many of them, [including me, my husband, etc.] are living right here in [community name].

There is currently no cure.

[Insert your personal story here.]

I invite our neighbors to show their support [by attending an event or making a donation].

For more information, please contact [insert contact information].
