Event Description

The BIG Give S.A. is a 24 hour online giving opportunity to support local charities. Donations to the Lonestar Parkinson Society would be greatly appreciated, as we serve people with Parkinson's Disease in a 7 county area. Our vision one day is to build an assisted living home for Parkinson's patients and their spouse or partner. Our beginning plans are being initiated at this time. Contact Tommy Dubuque for more information. (tommydubuque@yahoo.com)

What's Happening

Even though the calendar doesn’t say summer is here, the high temperatures of the recent weeks tell a different story.


TIPS FOR STAYING COOL


Wear cool clothing: Dress in light-weight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing, preferably of natural fabrics like cotton. Use hats and umbrellas outside. Parkinson’s patients are at a higher risk of melanoma, so cover up with light clothing and/or use sunscreen regularly. If you have not seen your dermatologist in a year or more, make an appointment for a skin check.

Drink plenty of fluids: Drink plenty of water and fruit or vegetable juice even if you don’t feel thirsty. No alcohol, coffee or tea. Seek medical help if you suspect dehydration.

Avoid direct sun: Stay indoors during the hottest hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you want to be outside, make sure it’s during cooler hours and you are in the shade, on a covered porch, or under an umbrella.

Don’t forget the sunscreen.
