Cover Image for About Us

Presently Parkinson's Disease effects 10 million people worldwide and is now one of the fastest growing diseases on earth.

I'm Shawn Duff the Founder of www.firefighterspd.com and was diagnosed with Parkinsons in 2007. I began treatments that finally led to my Deep Brain Stimulation surgery in 2014. While all of my treatments certainly help me fight this disease. There is still no cure and that is our mission going forward along with our team of Neurosurgeons, Doctors, Nurses, Scientists, Clinical Support Specialists and Therapists. Our goal is to help support local chapters of Parkinson's while at the same time funding and finding an ultimate cure.

We are also pleased to work in association with our sisters and brothers in the Police and First Responders community. Their lives are also on the line on a daily basis as they fight the good fight on Parkinson's along with us.

As mentioned, there are over 10 million people on earth living and suffering with Parkinson's Disease. If each person downloaded a copy of our book at $10.00, that would generate 100 million dollars. If these same 10 million people followed our "Power of 30" below over the coming year, we would generate 3 billion dollars for research. We all know 30 people who are close to us with children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews who will not only benefit from our book by securing their financial future, but also will be a part of a unique group solving the puzzle for a cure for Parkinson's Disease. Can you think of a more worthwhile project?

POWER OF 30

Word of mouth marketing and the power it brings to your organization can only be described in one word: Fantastic!.

It is the oldest and most successful way of getting your message across known to civilization dating back to the earliest days of the human race. It has been around since the cavemen roamed the earth in search of food. When a group of hunters came back to the compound bragging about a GREAT! hunting spot they had found. Over the next weeks and months that particular spot ultimately became the most Popular hunting spot in the region. It worked back then and it still works in today's modern society.

It's not only one of the most popular means of promoting your cause or product. It becomes one of the most enjoyable. Spreading the news and opportunity for family, friends and business associates to be a part of a program to enhance the lives of others is truly an enjoyable experience working for a common goal.

You are the one person all the people trust above all others for it has been proven over time that a friend's word is Golden and trusted. If a restaurant you tell them about has the best food, they will eat there.If a product you rave to them about works. They will buy it. It's that simple.

It has been proven that a full 92% of consumers believe recommendations from friends and family over all other forms of sales through advertising. Back in the 1960's when we were selling or fundraising there was only one option. The rotary telephone. Wow, we have come a long way in today's world with so many social media platforms. People can reach 30 other people in a matter of seconds in support of your cause.

So begin now and within a few hours we will all be on our way to finding a cure for Parkinson's Disease and educating our children on the benefits of beginning early in life to secure their own financial future. Can you think of a more worthwhile project?
