MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT FEBRUARY 2018 · Parkinson's Resource Organization


Category: Message From The President

Already looking at the month of LOVE. We wish a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to all of you. Here at PRO we love working so no one is isolated because of Parkinson’s. Our hearts fill with joy and love each time we’ve given a bit of hope and a new bent on life to someone.

Did you know that February is the only month this year that will pass without a single full moon?

The best laid plans did not work for launching the new website on January 1st. We launched it January 5th and took it down January 10th because it had too many glitches. We’re back to the drawing boards and heavy work ethics to see when next it would be feasible to launch.

The sales of the DVDs from our awesome symposium exploded in January, and we re-ordered again. If you would like a set of “A Guided Journey On The Road To The Cure,” please visit our store.

We are so saddened that our good friend, supporter, and the creator of our Glendora support group back in 1994, Carole Roberts-Wilson, MA, SSLP passed away at the end of January of multiple myeloma. I will personally miss her very much.

We thank John Mason and are proud to announce the opening of another Support Group on the fourth Thursday of each month. Check the calendar on the last page.

For your reading enlightenment this month we’re proud to present to you: (“ICBII`”), Reports on the Test Results of its Potential Alzheimer’s Drug on this page; A Country That Punishes Drug Traffickers With Death Is Investing In Medical Marijuana by Isabella Steger on page 2; Navigating Challenges At The Pharmacy: A Pharmacist’s Perspective on page 3; Are Women With Parkinson’s At A Disadvantage? on page 4; an Exercise Prescription also on page 4; and How To Respond To A Data Breach on page 5.

Again, Thank You all for your tax-deductible donations giving us the opportunity to help MORE – to help MORE people, MORE often, MORE timely, with MORE information in a MORE compassionate way. We know we are providing valuable information and support in the Parkinson’s community. Keep giving, we continue to appreciate your monthly or general donations through our safe PayPal donation page or by mail to our office in Palm Desert, California.

Communicate with us through FacebookTwitterLinkedIn, and Instagram. There’s no reason not to stay in touch with us now.  We would love to receive your social media handles so we can be more easily in touch with you as well.

Until next month, REMEMBER Groundhog Day and Nat’l Wear Red Day on the 2nd, Super Bowl on the 4th, Mardi Gras on the 13th, Valentine’s Day on the 14th, Chinese New Year on the 16th, and President’s Day on the 19th. The flower is the violet and the common primrose, and the birthstone is the Amethyst which symbolizes piety, humility, spiritual wisdom, and sincerity. ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!

Founder & President
