Parkinson Society Ottawa has been very pleased to receive ongoing support from the Leacross Foundation that once again donated $6,000 to help support our information, referral and counseling program. Over the years, the foundation’s support has ensured that thousands of people newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and those whose condition has progressed to require life-changing decisions, have access to the Parkinson’s specific information and support that they need.

The Leacross Foundation funding has also allowed PSO to reach out to isolated care partners who can be at risk, themselves, to health crises due to increased age, and the increasing responsibilities of their growing care giving role. Parkinson Society Ottawa thanks the Leacross Foundation for their ongoing generosity and support which has gone a long way to helping us make a difference – everyday!
