MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - NOVEMBER 2019Category:
In the story RED MARBLES, one of the morals is: We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds.
As 2019 comes to a close, and we reflect on the year, we stand in gratitude and appreciation to our many supporters for helping us help so many. Through the efforts of our support groups, one-on-one coaching, the Wellness Village, our interactive website, and, of course, our monthly newsletters, we have reached more than 75,000 people in 2019, more than ever before in our 29-year history.
Our database grows by nearly 100 names per month, and we’ve discovered that our Parkinson’s community is starving for connection. The team at Parkinson’s Resource Organization IS that connection to live, human conversation, communication, one-on-one assistance, and personal encouragement. Nowhere else in the Parkinson’s world is this level of personal care and connection found.
Our mission and daily endeavors are NOT AN OPTION; they are a requirement. We MUST be here for those who need us.
To do this, asking for support is also NOT AN OPTION. We need you. As we look to 2020 as a year of possibility and growth, your help is vital to our organization and outreach.
As we near the season of giving and perpetual hope, please remember how much your charitable giving means to PRO. Help us to burn bright, to be the “light at the end of the tunnel” to receive their Red Marbles. Dedicate your holiday donations to those dearest to you, by going to parkinsonsresource.org/donate or mailing checks to PRO.
I thank you in advance for helping us help so many others.
This month NEWSWORTHY NOTES includes ON THE ROAD TO THE CURE. Thanks to all of you that said you missed it.
Additionally, informative and exciting news is THE MEAL LIFTER; CHOOSING A CAREGIVER: AGENCY OR PRIVATE?; WRITE THE ENDING TO YOUR LIFE STORY!; our BITS AND PIECES about PARSLEY; and a PROVOCATIVE LETTER.
