2020 Support Group dues are due 01/01 of each year. If you have not already done so, please mail your check for $25.00 per family to Mid-South Parkinson's Disease Foundation, 1512 Pine Shadows Drive, Memphis, TN 38120. After 02/29/2020, any unpaid member dues will be $30.00. 

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.

Thank you, Fred Booker, for choosing Mid-South Parkinson’s Disease Support Group to receive the benefit of your award.
