Who We Are!
Laura started PSP Awareness In May 2019 to help support & spread Awareness throughout the communities and in the medical field for Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) and Atypical Parkinsonism. Laura’s Mom (Coleen) was officially diagnosed in late 2018 with PSP after being misdiagnosed for a couple years. We tracked symptoms as far back as 2015. She rapidly progressed after official diagnosis and unexpectedly but peacefully passed away in her sleep beside Laura on May 18, 2019.
We struggled to find resources and supports for this rare neurological disorder and not many doctors or specialist had even heard of it (1 out of 10). It was very frustrating and discouraging for all of us. Laura decided to make it her mission to find and provide the best care and resources for her mom, and is passing along her knowledge and experience in hopes it will help others! We have started to make some noise online bringing awareness and much needed attention to these rare diseases. Our Goal is to reach and support all those suffering and in need of support across the globe with PSP/MSA/CBD.
There is no known cause, treatment or cure for Atypical Parkinsonism - YET!
Help us change that!
We have launched an Awareness Shop that offers Atypical Parkinsonism Awareness T-Shirts and apparel. We donate a portion of all sales to Atypical Parkinsonism Charities Worldwide. Our Hope is to help spread awareness across the globe with our hand designed items for PSP, MSA, CBD and support research for a cure. Our Items are designed to help showcase and increase awareness for these rare neurological diseases around the world. Please take a look in our shop and check back often as we add new designs and products!
