Gene Ginsberg, M.D., is welcoming his family and friends to his fourth piano recital in Allentown, PA, to benefit PDF on Saturday, September 24.
Dr. Ginsberg, a retired geriatric physician, has lived with Parkinson’s since 2006. He was inspired to use his passion for piano for the Parkinson’s cause and has helped raise more than $10,000 for PDF.
“My goal was to entertain but also show others what a person with Parkinson's can do with a little perseverance and ‘give back’ to PDF, an organization that has helped me through it's mission of education and research. I hope to increase awareness and encourage more dialogue about this disease,” says Dr. Ginsberg.
