October, 2019

Mid-South Parkinson’s Disease Support Group has been selected to receive $1,000 from Regions Bank on behalf of Fred Booker, the January 2019 recipient of the Better Life Award, given monthly to an outstanding Regions associate.  Regions donates $1,000 on behalf of each Better Life Award winner to the nonprofit organization of their choice. Fred chose Mid-South Parkinson’s Disease Support Group because his father was recently diagnosed with the disease.
