Dear Friend of PDF:
Along with my fellow Board Members, I too have a personal stake in ending Parkinson's – my mother. That's why I'm joining the Board's offer to match your gifts for up to at least $100,000.
My mother lived with Parkinson's disease for many years. When my father died just a few years after her diagnosis, my mom and I became a team. I managed her care and stood by her side for ten years.
This experience taught me the very high cost of Parkinson's disease, and motivated me to help find a solution, so I joined PDF's Board.
I have since learned that PDF's mission to fund research is paramount. I learned from personal experience that the work PDF does to support people living with PD and their families through education and advocacy programs is critical.
This is why with my colleagues on PDF's Board of Directors, I am helping to match your donations for up to at least $100,000 until midnight on Tuesday, December 31, 2013. Your gift of $50 will automatically become $100, a gift of $100 becomes $200 and a gift of $500 becomes $1,000!
PDF is a sound investment – please give today.
We are in this together. We have a lot at stake.
