Then on Saturday, September 16th from 9 a.m. to noon with The Fall Walk Through the Ranch at the National Ranching Heritage. Both events will include family fun activities and food. 

Cassondra Davis, a Lubbock resident and board member was diagnosed with young onset Parkinson's in March. She says upon learning about her diagnosis she turned to the organization for support. 

"They were just available to me in all different formats, from therapy, to doctor recommendations, to the symposium they put on every year which gives the latest information on treatments and research and things like that," Davis said.
