The Greenville Area Parkinson Society (GAPS) began as a social network in the early 1990's and became an official non-profit 501(c)3 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 the disease progression.  GAPS is not about medication or research, but truly focuses on offering support to our members and their caregivers as they learn to cope with the challenges and obstacles of living with PD.
