When my daughter was 20, 2 years ago, she was diagnosed with advanced cerebellar atrophy. She recently had another office visit with her neurologist to get results on another series of results from her MRI. I was told her brain was that of an 80 year old. I want to know is there anywhere I can take her and are there any support groups she and I can attend? Please help.
I am sorry for your daughter. The prognosis of cerebellar atrophy is usually not encouraging. I hope you have been informed about any identified cause of the atrophy. It is very much important that she is a part of some group where there is exchange of information. I hope someone from this community can help with any information they have on such a group.
