Sanna died on November 13, 2008 from a sudden heart attack or arrhythmia, nearly 2 years after her surgery. She had been recovering both cognitively and physically steadily, and was making good progress. Dealing with the loss has been very tough on her family and friends.
We’ll keep this blog as a memorial site and I’ll be adding photos from Sanna’s life. Sanna was an extremely brave, thoughtful, and generous person.
My favorite quote from the memorial service was by Dave Goldsman, who said that Sanna was “an angel without wings”.
We miss her terribly.

Sanna is going through a long recovery process after a successful meningioma surgery. This blog is a vehicle for her to express her thoughts and experiences, assisted as needed. My hope is that it becomes both a sort of occupational therapy, as well a way for her to keep in touch with her friends.

– Sanna’s sister, Britta
