Helene’s Story

Site created on December 27, 2019

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.  

Helene went into surgery this morning to remove a meningioma (brain tumor) that is residing near her optic nerves.  The tumor has been causing a continuous headache for months.  The surgery is scheduled to be between 4-6 hrs in length.  We will update her status once the surgery is finished.

Journal entry by Marilyn Bernu

Helene was on the move again yesterday...she moved to an assisted living home yesterday. She has made great improvements and is walking short distances with her walker. Therapy will continue by coming to see her at the house. Helene is looking forward to be able to have some social time now. There are 3 houses together on the block and they do gather together. Today Helene played bingo at one of the other houses. She is able to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the fresh air. She can have visitors outside. I don’t have the number to call for appointments but will get it for everyone. She would love to hear from you her new address is:

821 7th Ave SW
Perham 56573

Helene is sure happy to be able to watch the Twins play baseball!
