MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT MARCH 2017Category: Message From The President
As Charles Dickens said about March, “It was one of those days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” March encompasses lots of beginnings and endings just as we regularly experience in the PRO office. We continue with #YearOfTheCure as we provide you with “real time” science covered in our Update on ROAD TO THE CURE on this page. We loved the comments received about the Stem Cell Therapy information they wrote about last month.
March also brings articles from some of our extraordinary Wellness Villagers, including informative news in our Inspirational Corner in THE ELEPHANT ROPE (about belief) and, popularly known by the acronym DABDA, THE FIVE STAGES; HOW TO PROTECT YOUR FINANCES FROM A DEGENERATIVE ILLNESS by Chris Risenmay, CFP®, The Cypress Group; and from a caregiver comes CARING FOR MYSELF. Plus, we’ve added a story about Kathy Schriefer’s dad, A QUICK 14 YEARS: An Outsider; a continuation of our encyclopedia on diseases and disorders that have Parkinson’s overtones, CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB DISEASE; and GETTING DRESSED by Health Aides Made Easy.
Thank you all for your tax deductible donations giving us the opportunity to help MORE... to help MORE people, MORE often, MORE timely, with MORE information in a MORE compassionate way. We know we are providing valuable information and support in the Parkinson’s community, and 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.
Remember to communicate with us through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. There’s no reason not to stay in touch with us now. We would love to receive your social media handles so we can be more easily in touch with you as well.
Until next month, remember: Daylight Savings Time begins on the 12th, St. Patrick’s Day is on the 17th, Spring begins on the 20th, and National Puppy Day on the 23rd. The flower is the Daffodil and the Birthstones are the Aquamarine, Bloodstone & Jade. You might also take note that March is National Nutrition Month. ALWAYS remember to CELEBRATE YOU and PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS!
Love, Jo Rosen
Founder & President
