Message From The President - December 2022Category: Message From The President
December always sneaks up on me... As the year winds down it also ramps up, with more holidays, more parties, more family time, more gifts, more cookies, more celebration. It can also be a difficult time for those newly or soon-to-be grieving, estranged from family, or far away from the people they love.
This time of year, I am reminded more strongly than ever of the Parkinson’s Resource Organization mission: “working so no one is isolated because of Parkinson’s”.
This month, as we release the last month of 2022 and invite 2023 as our new year, I send to you my warmest wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season. May it be overflowing with love, may your travels be safe, may your celebrations be merry.
