This is the second email from our Northern California Parkinson's Group: It is from PAN which is the Parkinson's Action Network. I went to their site, signed up for their emails and here is what I got:

SAVE THE DATE!
Wednesday, February 27
Parkinson's Call-in Day
YOU CAN HELP FIGHT FOR A CURE FOR PARKINSON'S WITH JUST ONE SIMPLE PHONE CALL!

Did you know the U.S. government is the largest funder of Parkinson's research in the world?

Did you know Parkinson's research funding is at risk of being drastically cut?

If you have Parkinson's or care about someone who does, we hope
you'll join us on this very important day.

On Wednesday, February 27, hundreds of Parkinson's advocates will be on Capitol Hill, meeting with their Members of Congress to fight for a cure for Parkinson's. The U.S. government is the single largest funder of Parkinson's disease research in the world, and Congress needs to hear from you about why it needs to continue funding this important research.

While we wish every member of the Parkinson's community could be on Capitol Hill with us that day, that isn't possible. But, you can still join us and be part of the power of the collective voice. Call in your support!

So, mark your calendar for February 27. We'll make it easy for you, and help guide the way. Calling your Senators and Representative will take only a minute, but could result in millions of dollars toward research on better treatments and a cure.

Please forward this email to everyone you know, and ask them to sign up for our email list so they, too, can receive updates about how to call their Members of Congress on February 27:

Yes, I want to help -- sign me up for PAN's Email List!

We've also created a handy flyer for you to print and use however you'd like to help promote Parkinson's Call-in Day.

You don't have to have Parkinson's to call your Member of Congress about research funding. Anyone can do it! Friends, family, neighbors, doctors, nurses, work colleagues, church groups -- the more, the better. We want the phones to ring in the halls of Congress all day long, so that every Senator and Representative hears from their constituents that funding for Parkinson's research is important.
