John’s Story – YMCA Parkinson’s Program

After learning his insurance wouldn’t cover additional physical therapy, John Moffett’s physical therapist recommended the YMCA of Columbia’s Parkinson’s Program. Follow John’s journey as the Y helped him battle loneliness and face the physical and mental challenges of his illness.

Through the generosity of our community, John was able to receive a scholarship that allowed him the opportunity to heal. This is his story.
