Highlights from the unforgettable free screening event, "It's Just Parkinson's," held at the stunning Discovery Village At Sarasota Bay!

The first of two free movie screenings for 'It's Just Parkinson's' was a success! On June 12, 2023, Home Helpers teamed up with the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's and Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota to offer a free showing at Discovery Village At Sarasota Bay.

First and foremost, we want to express our deepest gratitude to John Cullen and his partner, Pattie Stoffel, for their presence at the event. Their personal attendance, genuine interactions with guests, and insightful Q&A session made the event truly special.

We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all 70+ guests who attended the event and filled the room with enthusiasm and energy. Thank you for being part of this important event and for joining us in supporting the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's.

A special shout-out goes to our supporting vendors: Abbott, United Access, Amneal, and Acorda Therapeutics. Your partnership and commitment to improving the lives of individuals with Parkinson's are invaluable. Thank you for being an integral part of this event and for your continued support in making a difference.

We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to the core team behind the scenes who worked tirelessly to organize and bring this event to life: Sammy Jo Munding from Discovery Village At Sarasota Bay, Megan Micale from Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's, and Jennifer Hedgepeth from Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Sarasota.
