Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. Sharon was recently diagnosed with Bulbar Palsy which is under the umbrella of ALS. This is a degenerative motor neuron condition that starts with difficulties in speaking, chewing and swallowing and then progress into muscle weakness & eventually paralysis. Sharon is strong and is working hard at staying positive & enjoying spending time with her friends, children & grandchildren. She wants her loved ones to be informed so that she doesn't have to be discussing her ALS but instead focus on the things she enjoys most. Thank you so much for taking to time to read the updates. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.
