Babs Passed Away Due To Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy
Whitney Way Thore posted a loving tribute to her mom Babs, a day after the latter woman passed away. She shared some beautiful pictures of her mother. Babs meant so much to Whitney, and still does. The world got a little darker and colder on that day. However, she’s alive in the hearts of those who cared about her, including viewers. Of course, her husband and children will feel this loss the most. However, they can remember the good times, and treasure those precious memories.
The health issue that led to the death of Glenn’s wife Babs, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, is a disorder that negatively impacts the body’s cardiovascular system. Amyloid builds up in smaller cerebral blood vessels and leptomeninges. The blood vessels become thinner and weaker, and brain bleeds may result.
In season 11’s premiere, the scenes that referenced the family’s grief were so moving. Watching was an emotional experience. As the newest MBFFL installment continues, there will be more to learn about how the Thores are coping with such a profound loss. Whitney’s bravely rallying for the sake of her father, which is very selfless. My Big Fat Fabulous Life‘s Glenn Thore‘s trying to move on, and planning “bucket list’ activities that distract him from his pain, such as milking a cow. There’s plenty on the horizon, so be sure to stay tuned.
