Message from the President - September 2022Category: Message From The President
September is a very important month for me, for many reasons. Perhaps the largest is that this year marks seven years with a clean bill of health after colon cancer, a result I came to without chemo, but with endurance, life changes, support from everyone, and the Grace of the Universe.
It takes tremendous support and a team: family, friends, confidential advisors to keep your spirit high, motivate you, navigate life’s details and guide you during difficult times of traumatic change and struggle. PRO is your support team.
If you’re new to the Parkinson’s world or have been on the Parkinson’s journey for years, we know the value of support and understanding and are here for you. We offer private consultation, multiple support groups, a wealth of information on our website and resources dedicated to your “Quality of Life.” You are not alone!
Every month PRO brings you topics of interest and invaluable information. Enjoy our Newsletter and review all the pages on our website, there are answers to questions you may not have even asked yet as well as inspiring stories to brighten your day.
