Lisa’s Diagnosis

Lisa has Hereditary Diffuse Leukoencephalopathy with Spheroids (HDLS). In 2013, Lisa ran her 10th and last marathon, the Napa marathon. She ran the first half with her dad who, at 80 years old, had to drop out from a foot injury. In 2014 she had balance issues and stiffness in her wrists (likely unrelated carpel tunnel syndrome). In 2015, she had to stop running. In 2016, her conditioned continued to decline slowly. In 2017, Lisa was struggling to walk on her own, and it was difficult to understand her. In 2018, Lisa can no longer walk on her own, and talking is very difficult.
