Peavey Mart CEO helps us give back to the Parkinson Association of Alberta!

A burger stuffed with Babybel cheese?!  Oh HECKYEAH that’s what went down at our Red Deer location, the perfect burger to kick off summer!

Local Guest Chef Doug Anderson of Peavey Industries provided the creative juices for the “Stuffed BBQ Burger” which included two smash elk patties, ground pork and caramelized onions, stuffed with mini Babybel cheese.  It was served on a toasted potato roll with roasted garlic aioli, Troubled Monk open road BBQ sauce, shredded lettuce, green pepper with jalapeño jelly, and skewered with dill pickle spear!  $2 of every burger sold goes to Doug’s charity of choice, the Parkinson’s Association of Alberta, Central Alberta chapter.

It is with a heavy heart that Doug made his charity selection, in honour of co-worker and friend Albert Lee, who recently passed away from an aggressive form of Parkinson’s Disease.  Doug notes “Albert cared deeply for his wife, children and grandchildren and the disease not only shortened his successful career, but also robbed him of time with his family”.

Parkinson disease is a progressive neurological disorder.  It mainly affects parts of the brain controlling movement.  There is currently no cure for Parkinson disease and no treatment has been proven to slow, stop or change the progression of Parkinson’s.  Parkinson Association of Alberta provides support, services, and programs for the more than 15,000 people living with and loving those with Parkinson disease in Alberta, including one-on-one/family support counselling, support groups, information and resources, education sessions, help identifying community and government resources and more.

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Doug helped us hand over $1588 to the Parkinson’s Association today (Wednesday, July 20th).  Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guest’s month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $105,000 to local charities over the past 65 months!

    My grandma has Parkinson’s disease, she is about 75 years old it was detected 7 years ago. Right now it’s getting more difficult to live for her, because of stiff muscles she can’t even move. L-dopa and carbidopa medicines are given, but won”t give much relief. She can”t eat food and the skin is damaging forming ganglia. I thought this might be the last stage and the medications she was given did not help at all, so I started to do alot of research on natural treatments, I was introduced to Health Natural Centre and their Parkinson’s Herbal Protocol. She started on the Parkinson’s Treatment last year, her symptoms gradually diminished including her Tremors, Body Weakness and Muscle Pains. Reach them at , She is getting active again since starting this treatment, she is able to walk again ( down the street and back ) and able to ride her treadmill again! God Bless all PD Caregivers. Stay Strong, take small moments throughout the day to thank yourself, to love your self, and pray to whatever faith, star, spiritual force you believe in and ask for strength. I can personally vouch for these remedy but you would probably need to decide what works best for you.
