Thank you so very much to Power Over Parkinson's for today's [golf] outing. Eddie just had the best time and was able to feel good about himself with his golf game. We so appreciate you all!
...but the power behind POP is the fact that you know the debilitating effects of PD from the inside and are doing something about it in a big way.
The socialization and physical exercise components of POP are exactly what we need. Also, the seminars and zoom programs give us up-to-the-moment information on research that shows us a cure is just over the horizon. It would be very difficult to manage our PD without this kind of help.
Stay up to date with the latest news from POP.
