PDF Champion Making a Difference
Dr. Maria L. De Leon of Nacogdoches, TX has been extremely busy fundraising for PDF and building awareness in her community. Maria is a member of PDF’s People With Parkinson’s Advisory Council (PPAC) and is a dedicated PDF Champion!
On February 12, Maria’s local Defeat Parkinson’s group teamed up with the San Jacinto Junior Girls Scout Troop #9129 to pay tribute to the men and women in their community who are living with Parkinson’s as well as their caregivers. The troop planted red tulips at Oak Manor Nursing Home in preparation for Parkinson’s Awareness Month in April!
On March 23, Maria and her local Defeat Parkinson’s group hosted their 3rd Annual Parkinson’s Disease Conference. The event helped to educate East Texas about Parkinson’s disease, offer support, build awareness and fundraising for a cure! The event raised over $2,500 for PDF!
Thank you for your dedication to the fight against Parkinson’s disease, Maria!
Remember: The Cure Begins With YOU!
