  6. 7. A letter that was sent to the editor of a few Los Angeles publications… From Mark Siegel American Parkinson Disease Association President, Los Angeles Chapter <ul><li>I am writing to sincerely thank President Obama for lifting funding restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. I am 57 years old and was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 10 years ago.    Ten years ago, doctors told me that a cure was 10 years away. Now doctors are saying that a cure is 10 years away. Because of Obama's recent decision, maybe this time it will be true.   While I appreciate the action that President Obama has taken, I recognize that the funds critical for Parkinson's research cannot come from the government alone. That is why I have chosen to participate in and fundraise for the Parkinson's Beach Brigade Walk-a-thon on April 26th in Santa Monica. Registration is $25 and all contributions support scientific research. I urge others to visit www.ParkinsonsBeachBrigade.org and help fund research for a cure. </li></ul>
