Just wanted to let everyone know we lost my beautiful brave mum on 12/02.2012 at home peacefully with us all with her although it wasnt expected at all. She got bronchol phnemonia which slowed her breathin and resulted in the doctor giving her a shot of morphine which slowly sent her to sleep . not at all what we were expecting of this dreadfull illness so i am glad she had such a peacefull passing although i miss her more than i could ever describe she has been my inspiration throughout this whole time she was 49 when she was diagnosed and 61 when she passed away , i do believe that although tough sometimes, living with myself partner and kids she hung on in there because she was wanted and needed by us just as much as she needed us i am so sad she has gone but happy for her not to be trapped in that body any longer we gave her a good life and showed her love and affection everyday , i am so proud of her for how she coped with her illness and how strong and courageous she was . Just wanted to let you all know that psp took an amazing lady off this earth but she fought it all the way and for quite sometime too x I love you so much mum xxxxx

So sorry for your loss. Please pass on condolences to your family. PSP is a dreadful illness and my biggest wish is that soon they will find some form of medication to help manage the symptoms or better still - a cure. This illness wrecks the lives of both sufferers and their carers.

Take care..............SuzieQ x

So sorry Lynn. This is a selfish disease. It is good to see them smile and laugh and I pray tht you will remember those times in your heart.

Sorry to hear of your loss ... my mum died in February she had PSP although it wasn't diagnosed until about 6 months before she died. It is indeed a dreadful illness, my mum, although in her 80s was healthy and fit until about 5 years ago. I am running the London Marathon on Sunday for the PSP Association my justgiving page is

All the best and your mum and mine are now at peace x


I'm so sorry for your loss. You can at least be gratified by the knowledge that she is no longer trapped in her tortured body and that you provided her with an end surrounded by her loving family.

My wishes that you can get on with your life,
