Tom Mueller, an integral member of the James J. and Joan A. Gardner Family Foundation, was honored with the 2015 Sunflower Victory Award at the Sept. 12 Sunflower Revolution Symposium & Expo for inspiring, empowering and giving hope to others in the Parkinson’s disease community. He represents the “Move to Live, Live to Move” philosophy of the Sunflower Revolution.

“Tom and his wife, Linda, have been community leaders in the generation of awareness, support groups and fundraising for Parkinson’s disease well-being and research,” said Andrew Duker, MD, Co-Director of the Gardner Family Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute. “They have carried on their family’s tradition of active involvement and wholehearted support of causes they believe in, and our community is the one to reap the rewards.”

In November 2014, the Gardner Family Foundation announced a transformational, $14 million commitment to help provide the Institute with a new home.

The Sunflower Symposium & Expo’s 650 attendees heard from two Parkinson’s heroes — Matt Wilbur and Davis Phinney — who described their experience with Parkinson’s disease. Attendees also learned from UC Health physicians about health issues related to the disease.
