Parkinson’s Warrior is for anyone waging the daily battle with this seemingly-unstoppable illness. We vow to stay strong, keep fighting, and never give up!

Parkinson’s Warrior was founded by Nick Pernisco, a person living with Parkinson’s. After being diagnosed at 33 years old, Nick fell into a deep depression and hit rock bottom. It was when he was at the end of his rope that he decided he would not let this disease defeat him.

He decided to change his life by learning everything possible about Parkinson’s. He learned about nutrition, exercise, medications, advanced therapies, and decided to become physically, emotionally, and cognitively fit. He began seeing Parkinson’s as an enemy to be destroyed, or at least kept at bay, rather than simply as a disease.

Being a Parkinson’s Warrior is about having the right mindset. It’s about approaching disease management with a fiercely defiant attitude that says, “you will not beat me.”
