Parkinson Gala

As you may know, our founder (and my father) Ray Laethem was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson disease when he was just 46 years old. He was blessed to have had a wonderful team of neurologists and caregivers to help him deal with the disease that claimed his life. For that reason, I am giving my full support to the Michigan Parkinson Foundation. The Foundation spends every penny it raises for the care of Parkinson patients here in Michigan. With over 70 support groups throughout the state, the Foundation brought training, therapy, medical assistance and more to over 12,000 Parkinson patients this year. That is in addition to medical seminars, caregiver training, respite care and more

Please support our work. Join us at the Michigan Parkinson Foundation’s annual gala, “Small Steps and Big Strides. It is happening at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. The amazing Museum is all ours for the evening. A magnificent gourmet dinner, prepared and served by the Marriott organization, will be served. And musical entertainment will be provided by America’s #1 cover band, FiftyAmpFuse. Please consider attending the event and spreading the word to your friends and neighbors.
