The Memorial Wall

Honoring Those Who Have Gone Before Us

The Parkinson’s Resource Organization Memorial Wall is dedicated as a tribute to those who lost their battle with Parkinson’s disease.

This special way of remembering the loved ones in our Parkinson's community arose from the requests of families and friends asking us to design a place for healing of those who were left behind.

The purpose of the Parkinson’s Resource Organization Memorial Wall is a virtual place to 

- hold the memory of someone who lived with Parkinson’s and/or their family members
- memorialize families who were touched by Parkinson’s
- maintain the memory of others who suffered from the same or similar conditions
- allow family and friends to grieve and heal from the loss of someone they now can only remember
- bring greater awareness of the passing of Parkinson's sufferers than can otherwise be accomplished through print publications
- acknowledge and appreciate those who have made a donation and posted sentiments in memory of someone’s loved one
- provide a place for the living to visit so they can gain solace and understanding around the battle of a loved one with Parkinson’s, or a similar disease
- establish a memorial event honoring the legacy of the decedent and family
- serve as a memorial when the family prefers donations in lieu of flowers or tributes at anniversaries or other significant dates.

If you wish to honor your loved one and share your memories in a public fashion or establish a memorial event, such as a golf tournament, tennis tournament, or special award presentation in the name of the family or decedent, please contact us at info@parkinsonsresource.org

 

Donations made to the Memorial Fund go towards funding Parkinson's Resource Organization activities globally.
