About Us

The Greenville Area Parkinson Society (GAPS) began as a social network in the early 1990’s 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.  GAPS is not about medication or research but truly focuses on offering support to our members as they learn to cope with the challenges and obstacles of living with Parkinson’s Disease today.
