Patriots for Parkinson's in Memory of Ozzie Beck
The Patriots for Parkinson's team represents Veterans from the Long Beach VA Hospital Parkinson's Support Group. Our group is comprised of Veterans living with Parkinson's, Veterans caring for loved ones with Parkinson's, and family care partners. This year, our team is Moving in loving memory of Ozzie Beck.
Ozzie and his daughters, Karma and Laura, participated in the Long Beach VA Parkinson's Support Group from 2016 until Ozzie's passing in January 2021. Ozzie was an integral member of our group. He was quick to embrace new members, generously supported fellow group members, and consistently made us smile. His charm and sense of humor are greatly missed.
Please consider being a part of our Patriots for Parkinson's team and remembering Ozzie. I encourage you to get your friends, family and coworkers involved. In doing so, you are helping support the vital work of the Parkinson's Foundation.
Did you know that someone is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every 9 minutes in the United States? No one should have to face Parkinson’s alone. That is why the Parkinson's Foundation provides a community of support to give people the resources and help they need to live well with Parkinson’s.
