NPFM helps people with Parkinson's live well. That's why I'm involved and participated in Moving Day Twin Cities, A Walk for Parkinson's, 2014.
NPFM's work is seen around the region, especially in Willmar, Fargo/Moorhead, Alex, St. Cloud and Mankato where Parkinson's-friendly community work is underway. Our grant program provides money to help care givers take a break, without worrying about who is caring for their loved one. This fall we're adding grants to help with household chores and exercise support.
One of the most important services NPFM provides is information for people. Sometimes it's something as simple as answering the phone and listening while other times families find themselves in a crisis and need immediate help.
There is so much, much more to do. I thank you for joining me in this important work.

Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal to support the vital work of the National Parkinson Foundation.
