Our organization is non-medical and non-research, focusing on individuals with PD and the people in their lives. We know firsthand that they all have unique experiences in living with PD.

“Our vision is to maximize the quality of life for families affected by Parkinson’s Disease.”

About our brand and logo:

The tulip is the commonly known symbol for Parkinson’s Disease. We had our tulip designed specifically for GAPS to appear to be in motion. In recent years, it has been discovered that mobility is the key to maintaining a higher quality of life while living with PD. Our tulip is meant to look as if it is truly walking with you.
