Why Should I Give to DAPS?

Why should you support DAPS? Because DAPS makes a difference in the lives of people like Raymond, Gary, and Brenda. Watch this video to learn a little bit more about how DAPS fulfills its mission of impacting and improving the lives of those affected by Parkinson's disease. Then choose either a 1-time honor, memorial, or general donation, or choose to sustain DAPS with an annual membership or a monthly GEM membership.
