MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT SEPTEMBER 2016 · Parkinson's Resource Organization


Category: Message From The President

“Happy Birthday, Jo Rosen” has a glorious, in fact, triumphant ring to it this year, for it was just a little over a year ago that I faced Colon Cancer and the battle for my life. Today, my birthday gift is my medical report of CANCER FREE and with it a long and healthy future. I share this because like so many in our Parkinson’s community, “Quality of Life” takes work and commitment: In my case, I chose to decline Chemo and Radiation, I changed my lifestyle, hired a nutritionist, focused on exercise and was conscious of my mental state every day. 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.

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.

September brings you another PROvocative and informative newsletter some of which is currently in the news. Getting you started with Nerium EHT® – A Breakthrough DiscoveryWHY DOES MUSIC MAKE YOU HAPPY?, 10 INSIDER TIPS ONLY NURSES WILL TELL YOU,  FOODS BAD FOR CONSTIPATION, MONTHLY MARIJUANA COOKING CLASS TEACHES CALGARIANS TO COOK WITH CANNABIS, ALONG COME STATIN DRUGS!, and our BITS AND PIECES.

We hope your shopping at MACY’S SHOP FOR A CAUSE August 26th through 29th was as successful as our campaign, and because we sold the most coupons, we were awarded the prime location at the local store where we held a raffle for fabulous donated items from local merchants and celebrities. COME JOIN US again at the BELMONT CAR SHOW in Long Beach on September 11th. Our tent will be in the same location as all the previous years.

We were given a ONE WEEK STAY at the luxurious NEWPORT COAST VACATION VILLAS in Newport Beach, California from October 15th thru October 22nd. This is a premium week as there are no other villas available that week. Watch our FacebookTwitterLinkedIn, and Instagram pages for the auction information or call us to make your bid or ask for additional information.

We know we are providing valuable information and support in the Parkinson’s community, 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.

Until next month, remember: Labor Day and Int’l Day of Charity on the 5th, Patriot and Grandparents Day on the 11th, and Fall begins on the 22nd. The flowers are the Aster & Forget-Me-Not and the birthstone is Sapphire. ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!

Love, Jo Rosen

Founder & President
