Welcome to Sandra's CaringBridge website, updated by her daughter, Jodie. 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.
Sandra has been diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), a degenerative nerve condition for which there is no treatment. She takes a medication for Parkinson's disease which currently helps lessen her symptoms. She is in a nursing facility in Bigfork where she is getting really great care and working hard in physical therapy. PSP affects many areas of the body and has similarities to (as is often diagnosed as) Parkinson's and Alzheimers, but it is it's own very particular disease.

Thank you for the outpouring of support you've been sending to Mom. Keep it up, it makes a big difference in her days.
