HISTORY

The Greenville Area Parkinson Society (GAPS) began as a social network in the early 1990s and became an official non-profit organization in 2012.  The main goal of co-founders Patrick Sullivan and W. Stanton Smith is to offer support, education, and advocacy to the people of Greenville who are walking with this disease progression.
