Live Well Today with Parkinson's Disease: Every Victory Counts

Support Us

It is possible to live well with Parkinson’s today.

Welcome to the Every Victory Counts® program for self-care management of Parkinson’s disease.

Developed by movement disorder specialists together with the Davis Phinney Foundation, the Every Victory Counts program has been designed to help people living with Parkinson’s to better manage their disease and to improve their quality of life.

Living well with Parkinson’s requires information and tools you can use today so that you can take charge of this disease, rather than to be defined by it.

The Words Inspiration and Parkinson’s Don’t Typically Go Together
The truth is, Parkinson’s can strip people of momentum and hope. The Davis Phinney Foundation is committed to helping people living with Parkinson’s and their caregivers find new ways to live well today. We are constantly looking for ways to motivate and inspire, to fill the information gaps for people who live with this disease day in and day out, and to provide tools that help people engage and improve their lives.

And in the process, we ourselves are continually inspired. Each day we meet people exploring new ways to live better with the disease. We’ve met people who are climbing mountains, running marathons, and even riding their bikes across the country. And we’ve met people who find their personal moments of victory walking around the block or putting the finishing touch on a hand-made quilt. In the end, it’s not the size of the victory, but the recognition of it that counts. It’s the motivation behind it. The inspiration it can provide to others.

In the end, it’s about how lives can be improved today, and that is a victory in itself.
