The Gratitude of Friendship - PMD Alliance

This month, as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, a time when friends traditionally exchange cards and small tokens of their commitment to each other, we reflect with gratitude on the new friends we made last year and those we’ve known a while, like Wanda and Robert Stauffacher, who passed away last summer.

Both Wanda and Robert embraced the PMD Alliance mission to live connected and, in fact, coined the phrase “Parkinson’s is a team sport” that we often use in workshops and livestreams. In addition to the memories they created, we celebrate the legacy they left when they remembered PMD Alliance in their estate planning. Not only do their memories live on in our hearts, but their legacy gift will help PMD Alliance continue to deliver programs you count on. The impact of Wanda and Robert’s gift, and those of many others, carries on in the work we do.

Your Legacy Could Be… 

What does it mean to leave a legacy? The meaning is different for each of us. But once you know what you want your legacy to be, you can start building a plan and living in the way you want to be remembered.
