MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT AUGUST 2018Category: Message From The President
August already… where has the Summer gone? As we enjoy our HOT desert summer temperatures, we hope your “Lazy Days” are filled with time to relax and reflect, a good book or two and treasured time with family and friends. Fall is just a few months away, so we encourage you to sit back and enjoy every moment of the “vacation” season.
If you want something PROvocative and engaging to read, this month’s Newsworthy Notes has lots to pique your interest.
By no means lackadaisical, the articles this month include ICBII UPDATE ON THE ROAD TO THE CURE (as many of you know, my mother lived with PSP, although diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease); FORMER INVESTMENT BANKER JOINS LOCAL CHARITY BOARD and we are so pleased with Michael coming on board; WHAT IS ALIEN HAND SYNDROME?; FIRST OF ITS KIND RESOURCE DIRECTORY FOR PEOPLE AFFECTED BY PARKINSON’S: The Wellness Village; VITAMIN D AND DEPRESSION, and especially during these summer months, 6 UNUSUAL SIGNS OF DEHYDRATION YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT.
Join us in making a difference in your life or the life of a loved one this MONTH by donating. Without YOU, we could never do all that we do. Supporting us is simple: Make monthly donations through our safe PayPal donation page at ParkinsonsResource.org/donate or mail your donation to our office in Palm Desert, CA.
Until next month, REMEMBER Nat’l. Girlfriend Day on the 1st, Friendship, and Nat’l. Sister Day on the 5th, Int’l. Left-Handers Day on the 13th, and National Dog Day on the 26th. The flowers are the Poppy & Gladiolus, and your Birthstone is Peridot. ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!
