Dear Neuro Challenge Friends,
 
'Tis the season of gratitude. While gratitude is something we strive to practice daily, November warmly reminds us all to be thankful as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. At Neuro Challenge we are most thankful for the opportunity to serve YOU. Navigating this incurable disease is rife with challenges, but we strive to ensure your quality of life is maximized through our diverse array of programs and services and are grateful for your support in all aspects of that journey.

November is National Family Caregivers Month and a time to recognize and honor caregivers for their tireless dedication and commitment to people battling Parkinson's. One of our hallmark services, that directly supports Caregivers, is our individualized Care Advising. This service connects you to a trained Parkinson’s expert that can help you navigate the Parkinson’s journey, no matter where you are in the progression of the disease. 

During the season of gratitude and giving, we are asking you to open your hearts and make an end of the year, tax deductible, donation. The support we receive from you supports no-cost Care Advising, along with support groups, therapeutic offerings, and educational programs. By supporting Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's, you are enhancing the quality of life of a family impacted by Parkinson’s. For more information on how you can give, please contact our Development Director, Jennifer Bushinger-Ortiz at 
jennifer@neurochallenge.org or 941-926-6413.

If you are looking for other ways to give to Neuro Challenge Foundation, please consider attending the Cause 4 Fashion Luncheon on Tuesday, December 6th. Join us at this signature event to see our Parkinson's fighters and their caregivers rock the runway, Bayside at the Van Wezel. You’ll be dazzled by the latest evening fashions styled by Sandy Hapoienu, professional stylist and provided by CamiLynn Beth, North Star Jewelry and Macy’s. And mark your calendars for the Cause 4 Hope Gala on Friday, February 17th at Michaels on East.

On behalf of all our staff and board of directors here at Neuro Challenge, we wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.


Yours in the journey, 
 
Sara Grivetti, PhD, CRC
Chief Executive Officer
