The whole team at Ears To The House would like to share our deepest sympathies with Annabel Ross on this Tuesday afternoon after she revealed that her mother had lost her eight-year long battle with progressive supranuclear palsy earlier today.
Paying tribute on X, formerly Twitter, Ross said that her 72-year-old mother, Heather Joy, had previously beaten cancer no less than four times – and had died “with her three daughters by her side”, calling her “the strongest person we’ve ever known”.
Progressive supranuclear palsy is defined by Britain’s NHS as “a rare neurological condition that can cause problems with balance, movement, vision, speech, and swallowing”. The condition is ultimately caused “by increasing numbers of brain cells becoming damaged over time”.
Our sympathies and condolences go out to Annabel and her family at this sad time…
