MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT DECEMBER 2012Category: Message From The President
One precious month to go before we close another year and all of us at Parkinson’s Resource Organization send best wishes for a wonderful, safe and fulfilling Holiday season.
The outpouring of love and messages after my back surgery in October was incredible and received with my deep gratitude. Thank you. I missed and will miss seeing all of our support group members through the rest of the year.
It is so exciting to report this month’s update on the “ROAD TO CURE PARKINSON’S”. Additionally this month we are delighted to present an articles about THE FELDENKRAIS METHOD® by Pat Barragan, CLINICAL TRIALS, THE PROBLEM WITH REVOCABLE LIVING TRUSTS (in California) by Zoran K. Basich, Elder-Care, EASE THE ANXIETY OF THE HOLIDAYS by Kari Wells, LVN Senior Team Leader – Cambrian Homecare, and WHAT IS TMJ OR TMD AND WHAT ARE ITS SYMPTOMS? by: Stephen David Smith, D.M.D. (PA)

I am looking forward to again hosting up to nine Marines and Sailors at my home on Christmas Day and I send special wishes to all of you for a blessed Holiday.
Until next month REMEMBER to continue Hanukkah celebrations through the 5th, Human Rights Day is the 10th, Winter Solstice is on the 21st, Christmas Day is the 25th and Boxing Day and the beginning of Kwanzaa on the 26th. Celebrate all of them, CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!
