Thought for the Month

The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about.

Welcome!

Comal County Parkinson Support Group (CCPSG) was founded in 2007. CCPSG, supported by the Lone Star Parkinson Society, LSPS. We speak to the needs of those impacted by Parkinson's disease in New Braunfels Texas and surrounding areas. Our mission is to offer educational and emotional support through local support groups, educational seminars and regional and national resource information. We realize that a diagnosis of Parkinson Disease can be over whelming and depressive. Please understand it is not something you have to face alone. People with PD, caregivers, families and friends who wish to broaden their knowledge of Parkinson's Disease are welcome. Come join us at our bi-monthly support group meetings with expert speakers, and an awesome community of people with Parkinson's, and those responsible for their care. On the 2nd & 4th Saturdays, at:

Oakwood Baptist Church, Adult Education Building, 2154 Loop 337, New Braunfels TX 78130.
