Moress Part Of Parkinson Foundation’s Moving Day

Industry vet Stan Moress has been battling Parkinson’s disease for four years, and is part of the Franklin Area Parkinson’s Support Group. The FAPSG has a team for this year’s 5K Run/Walk at Edwin Warner park on June 3, Moving Day, the first major Parkinson’s event to take place in Nashville.

“My sincere hope is people with Parkinson’s will seek the support that is out there. When I first got diagnosed, I only told my closest friends and family. That was a mistake,” Moress recalls. “Now that I am involved with my support group, life has vastly improved.” You can donate directly to Stan and support his team here: www3.parkinson.org/goto/stanmoress.
