Rod Gnerlich

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.


Rod was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease fourteen years ago at age 60.  He has never let PD define him or stop him from living life the way he wants.  On July 4, 2020,, all that changed.  Our new puppy, Abby, got under foot and Rod fell.  He was in a lot of pain, so I took him to the ER.  He had a couple broken  ribs, punctured lung, as well as a few other things that required hospitalization.  A CT scan indicated a mass in his left thigh.  And there the story begins.


After two needle biopsies and an incisional biopsy, it was diagnosed as a desmoid tumor.
