Join me in my efforts to support CurePSP as I compete in the Ironman 70.3 Austin!

Iím asking for the support of friends, family and colleagues as I compete in the Ironman 70.3 on October 28th in Austin, Texas in honor of my mother, Linda Keilers. My mother was diagnosed with PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) 5 years ago and continues to bravely battle the disease. Over the past several years PSP has slowly robbed my mother of bodily control while leaving her mind intact. It began slowly with personality changes and loss of balance. Doctors thought she had Parkinsonís and began treating her accordingly. Her symptoms progressed to include difficulty speaking, uncontrollable laughter, and severe and constant muscle cramps in her arms and hands. She found it difficult to walk more than a few steps without falling. Thatís when the doctors knew we were up against something else. Once it was clear she had PSP, there was little that could be done. The disease is so rare that there just isnít much research on it, they explained. Since the diagnosis 5 years ago the disease has progressed but it hasnít been able to take away her drive, her love for her family or her personality. Though sheís trapped in her body, we know our Mom is still with us and weíre fighting for a cure.

PSP is a rare disease in the family of ďneurodegenerativeĒ diseases such as Parkinsonís, Alzheimerís and Lou Gehrigís. With your support, we can help push research toward a cure. Please support me, CurePSP and my Mom as I compete in Austin.
