Publisher's Summary

When Kathryn Leigh Scott's husband was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), a neurological disease for which there is (so far) no cure, it was a devastating time for both of them, not least because so little is known about the cause or treatment of a disease that affects some 20,000 Americans, a number similar to that of Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS).

Last Dance at the Savoy is both a personal story about Scott's husband, Geoff Miller, the founding editor of Los Angeles Magazine, who lived life fully despite having a terminal illness, and a sharing of her insights on dealing with the day-to-day issues of caring for someone with a progressive neurological condition. Scott "often yearned for someone to figuratively take my hand and walk with me through the difficult times; I hope through this book I can reach out to you with encouragement and practical advice".

Last Dance at the Savoy includes a resource guide that provides facts about prime-of-life diseases; contact information for support organizations, research studies, and clinical trials; where to find handicap products and equipment; and recommended caregiving publications and family conferences.

Contains a foreword by Yvette Bordelon, MD, PhD, a neurologist at UCLA whose clinical work involves the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders. A percentage of royalties from Last Dance at the Savoy are donated to CurePSP.

    "Incredibly Moving Experience"
    What did you love best about Last Dance at the Savoy?

    Beautiful actress/author Kathryn Leigh Scott was a loving and energetic caregiver to her dying husband. We can only hope to have someone half as patient and caring with us in our final days.


    Any additional comments?

    The chronicle of this intensely personal, yet ultimately universal, journey for Kathryn and her late husband is moving, well written, and well performed by the author. I'm extremely grateful that she memorialized this time in their lives.
