ASHLAND, Kentucky — A coalition is hosting a second fundraiser on April 12 to benefit research at the University of Kentucky on Parkinson's disease.

According to the Daily Independent (http://bit.ly/1qctPtj), the organization's first event last year raised $8,000 for research.

The group was formed by Deanna Arrington, who died last month of ovarian cancer. Arrington was diagnosed in 2002 with Parkinson's.

According to statistics from the University of Kentucky, the degenerative disease affects about 1 million Americans.
