“PAN is the most efficient – and effective – non-profit group I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Serving on the Dinner Committee gives me an opportunity to help at least a little to further a cause that is so important to my family personally and to so many others across the nation – and my fellow committee members make it fun too!”
“I volunteer because I believe PAN's work in bringing groups together and creating strong networks to advocate for people with Parkinson's is delivering results. Our efforts are building a strategy for success.”
“When issues arise that demand immediate action and united voices, PAN is there, usually before the stories hit the newspapers. There are dozens of worthy organizations out there, but I know that PAN has the best-informed and respected staff, as well as the track record and commitment to be an effective advocate for the entire Parkinson’s community.”
“I am honored to be given the opportunity to help support the dynamic work of PAN as they take aim on PD. However, I do this mostly to acknowledge the bravery and courage that I see daily in my many friends with PD. I want to stand beside them as they fight their way to resources, a better quality of life, and science that leads to a cure.”
“I volunteer for PAN in support of my father, George Prescott, and the millions of wonderful people afflicted with Parkinson’s disease. Being part of the Udall Dinner is uplifting to meet so many kind and talented people fighting for the same cause.”
“Our Son, Barry, who is now 59 years old, has had Parkinson's disease for 21 years – since the age of 38. We hope for the cure!”
