Hi everyone, we are Kathi’s daughters Taylor (26) and Jillian (22)! We wanted to start this site to keep our mom’s many friends and family members up to date about how she’s doing.
Our mom was first diagnosed with Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) around 2012. PLS is an extremely rare motor neuron disease that is similar to ALS, but is not fatal. It is a slowly progressing disease that has gradually impacted her ability to walk and speak over the past 10 years.
UPDATE: In January 2022, the doctor changed her diagnosis to Upper Motor Neuron ALS
