At least two people with Parkinson's Disease live on Kolohala Street - Howard Bilkiss and Dr. Byron Eliashof. Howard's daughter Dana grew up on Kolohala, and now living just a few minutes away, volunteers on the HPA's Board of Directors.
Howard and Byron stay healthy with medication and also lots of exercise. They participate in boxing through OrthoSport, and take Parkinsons specific classes at the YMCA.
Let’ support Kolohala residents and the entire Hawaii community by funding the HPA. Our fundraising will help HPA bring in speakers and hold symposiums, provide trainings, offer support groups, and further partnerships with providers in our community.
