The first phase of Star Center Foundation was develop support group for those who are suffering from Parkinsons with voicing difficulties . To aid in this Star Center Foundation has started the group Hear Me Roar, where individuals who have been in therapy for voicing can continue supporting each other. Individuals can share issues that are related to their disease process, support each other, and enjoy reading and singing out loud, or sharing ideas. It is led by a Speech Language Pathologist,.
