Essential tremor (ET) is considered the most common neurologic movement disorder, and is 20 times more prevalent than Parkinson's disease.
Essential tremor is a chronic condition characterized by involuntary, rhythmic tremor of a body part, most typically the hands and arms.
Essential tremor is considered a slow progressive disorder and, in some people, may eventually involve the head, voice, tongue (with associated dysarthria), legs, and trunk.
However, in many people, the disorder may be relatively non-progressive. The tremor may be mild throughout life.
To provide hope to the essential tremor community nationwide through awareness, education, support and research.
1. Expand awareness with patients to allow them to become advocates to doctors and the medical community
2. Educate both the community members and those unaware of ET
3. Help the ET patients with financial back up
4. Most of the patients are poor in my area, they are facing problems to have better treatment option due to lack of financial back up, I wish to help them.
