Note from Connie, April 20, 2020

Today, the sun is shining, it’s warm, the birds are chirping and I am thinking that sitting outside on the patio (social distancing of course) with a glass of lemonade just might be in order. Never has it been as important as it is right now to connect with others. I am amazed at the creative ways people are connecting and reaching out to others. My mom is in a nearby adult family home, where she lives with Parkinson’s disease. When we moved her to Oregon 12 years ago, Mom’s need and my own to find connection and support led us to Parkinson’s Resources. Today, I am finding new ways to connect with my mom. With the help of her caregiver, we are able to FaceTime – a new experience for my 85-year-old mom. Seeing creative ways to connect from PRO, I was able to arrange a “window visit” with her. These connections bring absolute joy to the day for both of us. I have the honor to serve as Chair for PRO’s board of directors. I continue to be so proud of our staff during these last many weeks as everyone transitioned to working from home, with new tools and challenges and to find completely new ways to connect and support. We are dedicated to continue to provide services and connection to our clients. Just as the sunshine is a much-needed gift to us in the Northwest, we need your gifts in the way of meaningful donations to support these vital programs. In my role on PRO’s board of directors, and both a client and donor, I can personally attest to the direct impact of your contribution. Every dollar is immediately directed to keeping us all connected, safe, and well during this time.
