The Parkinson’s Foundation makes life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by improving care and advancing research toward a cure. Chocolate Pizza Company is proud to partner in this effort. We have created a special edition Chocolate Pizza and will donate $5.00 for each one sold to The Parkinson’s Foundation. This 16 ounce special edition Chocolate Pizza blends gourmet milk or dark chocolate with homemade English toffee. Then, it tops it with teal colored chocolate gems, gold sugar stars and white sprinkles for a one-of-a-kind gift idea. Chocolate Pizza comes sealed in cellophane and served in a custom pizza box. Also, we add a label identifying it as supporting The Parkinson’s Foundation.
A Progressive Disease
First of all, over 10 million people live with Parkinson’s disease. But there is a lot learn about this disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. In the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, your face may show little or no expression. Your arms may not swing when you walk. Your speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time.” The Parkinson’s Foundation supports critical work in areas of medical research. Similarly, they also promote lifestyle improvements for those battling the disease.
