🖥 SherryC Cushing’s Slideshow

Cushing’s Help message board member sherryc presented this PowerPoint at Pioneer Pacific College in 2017.  I am resharing since Sherry recently died.

It took a lot of work with her failing memory but she did It! She wanted to get the word out about Cushing’s and her journey with this awful disease.
