Andrea Schaaf

After a series of inexplicable symptoms over the course of many months, I was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in January 2022. Shortly after, I made my way back to Ohio to be close to family and am living at The Beechwood Home in Cincinnati.

My symptoms have progressed and I no longer have the use of most of my muscles. Communication has become difficult but I am able to read messages sent to this site. My friends and family will help me provide updates on my illness along the way.
