Post Path report received
I just wanted everyone to know I received the path report from Mayo yesterday. It was positive for Lewy Body. My suspicions have been correct all along. He did suffer a massive stroke at the end which was the acute cause of death.
I have to say I have a lot of mixed emotions today.
I also received a very nice thank you from the MD at Mayo. He specifically thanked me for sending clinical history because at this point they have "none".

Please everyone who can find the strength, donate your loved ones brain. It is our only hope to others with this cruel and bewildering disease.

I am so grateful that this forum has been available to me for support. Although, I didn't post often, I did gain a lot of comfort and knowledge from you all.

God Bless you all and the loved ones you care for!!! Be strong....

My motto is now.... "Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened." Dr. Suess

Thank you so much for the gift of post mortem brain donation to research. Not an easy path but the rewards are great, to you and others in the future. There will come a time when diagnosis and more understanding treatment will be available partly because of your participation. You are in my thoughts for a peaceful life.


"See this lady she's 85 but she's nice", This is the way my husband, Mr B., introduced me in 2006 to the people only he knew. Death due to pneumonia. Lewy Body Dementia diagnosed post mortem at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida.

Thank you again for making such a precious donation possible. It's only through such donations that discoveries can be made about Lewy Body Disease.
