Message from the President - February 2023Category: Message From The President
I don’t know about you, but for me, January flew by in a blink (more on that later). Now we’re poised at the start of the month of love, which is as good a time as any to remind you that we LOVE each and every one of you, and we LOVE what we’re cooking up here at PRO for the coming months.
I say January flew by in a blink because we spent the month making plans and laying the groundwork for a fantastic (and busy) schedule of 2023 events to expand our resources, reach new constituents, and celebrate the here and now for those of us living with or caring for someone with Parkinson’s. This includes a brand new support group for young people with Parkinson’s, behind the scenes improvements to our website, and we’re putting together our busiest Parkinson’s Awareness Month ever!
Enjoy the articles this month, starting with the UPDATE ON THE ROAD TO THE CURE on this page.

Thank you for all you do for PRO. Your donations keep us whole. Until next month, REMEMBER Super Bowl Sunday on the 12th, Valentine’s Day on the 14th, Random Acts of Kindness Day on the 17th, President’s Day on the 20th, and Black History Month throughout February. The flower is the Violet, and the birthstone is the Amethyst.
ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!
