Jenifer was a lot like Keri B. Still
22 November 2008 | by joanartSee all my reviews

This young lady had a career, and was an outstanding individual. Why was she, and so many, outstanding people, in good health, with good history, afflicted with this disease?? Keri Brown Still also died with ALS. She died at age 29, this year, 2008, with ALS. She left a 10-month old daughter, and a husband. She only lived a year after a PROBABLE diagnosis of ALS.

Like Jenifer, she faced much frustration with the medical field. This is why, in Keri's memory, we just held the 1st annual, KERI B. STILL CONFERENCE on ALS this Nov. 14, 2008, in Winston-Salem, NC. Please visit the website, www.keribstill.com to learn more about ALS and Keri, and the extraordinary person she was. She was not 40, or even 30. She barely had achance for a career, but mostly she had only weeks to be a MOM. THis was her greatest joy, and her greatest sorrow.
