This is a neurological condition which causes progressive damage to the brain as the years pass. It is caused by a loss of nerve cells in a part of the brain which then leads to a reduction in the amount of the chemical dopamine in the brain. As dopamine plays a part in regulating movement it is the reduction of this chemical that results in the symptoms commonly seen with Parkinson's. The underlying cause of the condition is unclear.

'The best broker you can get' Sarah Angel. An angel in name and in facts. She's the customer representative that has spent months in the months in helping me getting the deal I got. Always patient, never given up looking for the right policy and me. Frankly, I never thought a lot about brokers but this company is a blessing to people that cannot get insurances by themselves for health reasons. Thank you. 4.8
