FEBRUARY Message from PRO President Jo Rosen

Love is in the air! February is the month to celebrate those we hold most dear; our sweetheart, our soulmate, our spouse, best friend and, of course, family members. As an organization, our heart beats with gratitude and LOVE for our incredible community of followers, friends, supporters, volunteers and of course, our donors. When our site visitors and newsletter readers take the time to thank us for the information we share and the support we offer the Parkinson’s community, our heart steals with appreciation.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments about last month’s newsletter. We received lots of questions via email, comments on our website and phone calls about finding TMJ/TMD dentists across the country. We also noticed much more interest in the #YearOfTheCure as covered in our Update on the Road to the Cure.

To our entire community we wish you a blessed Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome you to join us for a very special Valentine’s Champagne Brunch, February 11th at  Venus De Fido. Visit our website for details and to purchase your ticket.

On a sad note, we lost our bookkeeper of 23 years… Leonard Rudolph passed away December 31, 2016. All of us knew him as “Uncle Leonard.” He was one of our rocks. He was only 89 when he passed. We express our deepest sympathies to his family and miss him terribly.

January brought more donations from our year-end campaign, and again we say thank you for your tax deductible contribution giving us the opportunity to help MORE people, MORE often, MORE timely, with MORE information in a MORE compassionate way.

The ROAD TO THE CURE continues with a very interesting review of Stem Cell Therapy, along with bringing the ICBI science to the people.

February brings articles from some of our extraordinary Wellness Villagers; Informative news such as: WHAT IS A CLINICAL RESEARCH STUDY? from Parexel Clinical Trials, IS YOUR FINANCIAL HOUSE IN ORDER? by David Thatcher, CFP® at The Cypress Group. We also bring to you articles of interest such THE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF TREMOR .

We know we are providing valuable information and support in the Parkinson’s community, and continue to appreciate your monthly or general donations through our safe PayPal donation page at ParkinsonsResource.org/contribute-2/ or by mail to our office in Palm Desert, California.

Until next month, REMEMBER Groundhog Day on the 2nd, National Wear Red Day on the 3rd, Super Bowl on the 5th, Valentine’s Day on the 14th, President’s Day on the 20th, and Mardi Gras on the 28th. The flower is the Violet and the Birthstone is the Amethyst. ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS.
