My mother lost her fight with MSA on October 28, 2018. Mom was a vibrant spirit who loved her granddaughters beyond words and loved dancing and spending time with friends. Because MSA is such a rare disease there isn't much research for just that. It gets lumped into Parkinson's research in hopes that what works for that will work for this. I'm started this memorial page to help fund research for MSA in her honor, because her life and ours were sold short on time with this beautiful soul. This is a devastating disease to watch happen to a loved one and it will take an army to fight this disease and win. I ask that you join me in that fight, for Valerie and everyone else.
