MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT JUNE 2018Category: Message From The President
The phrase “lazy days of summer” does not fit the Parkinson’s Resource Organization model. As the annual “season” in the Coachella Valley closes, the team at PRO is gearing up for a summer of planning exciting events, making BIG changes. It was one year ago when we planned to launch our new website. With the help of The H.N. & Frances C. Berger Foundation grant and our staff—a group of wonderful volunteers and contracted individuals—our NEW website is expected to relaunch July 1. We are also welcoming a variety of NEW members into our Wellness Village, all in the interest of better serving our community.
The management and creative team at PRO is growing and bursting with inspiration, energy and boundless talent. Again, thanks to the H.N. & Frances C. Berger Foundation grant, the help of supportive staff, a team of techy volunteers and contracted individuals, we are converting our database from an old, non-supported program to cloud-based, customer relationship management software that will help us communicate better and easier with everyone. We’ll be asking you to update your contact information with us so we can reach you more easily.
This month’s jam-packed newsletter includes: HELP! I’VE FALLEN AND I CAN’T GET UP: Raizer By Liftup; CAMPTOCORMIA: THE BENT SPINE SYNDROME: A Parkinsonism; GLUTATHIONE TREATMENTS FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE: IS IT EFFECTIVE ENOUGH? by Kimberly Hubenette, DDS; PARKINSON’S DISEASE & INFECTIONS; and our inspirational THE BUTTERFLY: ABOUT STRUGGLES.
We are so incredibly grateful for your tax-deductible donations giving us the opportunity to help MORE people, MORE often, MORE timely, with MORE information in a MORE compassionate way. 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 Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, 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: Nat’l Best Friend day on the 8th, Flag Day on the 14th; Father’s Day on the 17th, and Summer Solstice on the 21st. The flower is the rose, and the birthstones are the Alexandrite, Pearl, & Moonstone. ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!
Love, Jo Rosen
Founder & President
