Why We Do This


Holly’s father, Matthew T. Robinson, Jr., was the original “Gordon” on Sesame Street. Matt was diagnosed with PD in 1982 at the young age of 46. In honor of Holly’s father, HollyRod partnered with the Center for Parkinson’s Research and Movement Disorders at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California to establish the HollyRod Compassionate Care Program with the mission to improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s who have little or no health insurance and limited financial resources.
