Happy Father's Day

They were never as great a figure as mothers. Their status was never lauded.
But, they simply carry on their duty. They worked hard at their job so that the family can have a better life. They played hard with us when we were kids. They backed us up when called upon. They provided us advice as we needed it.
They are none other than our Fathers; men that never ask for favours or recognition.
19 June is dedicated to all fathers who had been one of the key figures in our overall development. Cheers to all Fathers!
Instead of plans for a gift for your father, make a donation! Your father will be proud of you. You make your father proud too!
Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre provides people with Parkinson and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals.
Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 January 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).
Since then, the Society has organized a number of programmes including annual public forums, therapeutic exercise programmes and social and recreational activities, aimed at improving the lives of People with Parkinson (PwP).
The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, three out of every 1000 individuals aged 50 years and above have Parkinson. The number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
