DOROTHY MILLS-TETRO, a long-time resident of Century Village, a good friend to hundreds of people in and out of the Village, -- and to some people the very best Treasurer that UCO has ever had, has been struck down by a very rare disorder called GUILLAIN-BARRE (gee-YAH-buh-RAY) syndrome. It is the body's immune system attacking the nerves.

She has been in the Good Samaritan Medical Center since July 12th under the care of a whole team of specialized doctors treating her for this illness of which there is no known cure. However, it can be treated and controlled with some degree of success when the illness is recognized in the early stages.

On July 22nd, she is being transported to St. Mary's Medical Center for weeks of extensive rehabilitation therapy. A card or a note wishing her well would go a long way in getting her out of the doldrums and the dark and painful days she has
already suffered.

Thank you sincerely to all of those who have already expressed their best wishes and kindness.



  1. We are all thinking and praying for your speedy recovery. You are in our prayers each and every day. Think positive and before you know it you'll be back on your feet again. Love ya girl.

  2. Amen to that, Marilyn. She's a really good person and she will come out of this okay. I know it! and we will be there to help her do so.

  3. My thoughts & prayer's have been with Dorothy, since first I learnt of her illness.Thank you Ed for the post...
