Pinky's Passion for Parkinson's Disease research

The DBS Program Staff rallied support for Pat Erickson on Saturday July 26th at the annual Pinky’s Passion Walk in Edmonds.  Pat and her husband Steve started a foundation several years ago to raise funds for Parkinson’s research.  They host several lively fundraisers every year, and they really know  how to throw a party.  A great time in the summer sun was had by all.  Pat (Pinky) recently underwent DBS surgery, and she spoke at the event about her Swedish care experience with great fondness and appreciation.  More about  Pinky’s story and her fight for a cure can be found here.

Supporting patients with Parkinson's Disease

On Saturday, May 17, Swedish was well represented at the Washington Chapter of the American Parkinson’s Disease Annual Magic of Hope Dinner and Auction.  Several of our Swedish Neuroscience Institute providers, patients, caregivers, families, and distinguished community members attended the event, and contributed toward a successful fund raiser.  Swedish offered a generous donation to help sponsor the event, and Swedish patient and his wife David and Nancy Jones contributed a generous financial gift for programs and services for those living with Parkinson’s Disease in our communities.

Swedish is proud to partner with the APDA to support research, education, programs and services that stay in our community to benefit those living with Parkinson's Disease.
