Cerebral Anoxia

Unfortunately, Harolyn was born with cerebral anoxia, which affected her a lot, and she required full-time care. The speech center of her brain was damaged, so she could not speak by the age of four, nor could she recognize or communicate with anybody, including her parents. Because of that, her mother put her in a private care institution in the hope of improving her life. The mental disability limits Harolyn’s whole life, and Dorothy blamed herself for her daughter’s brain damage, because she tried to delay her birth, waiting for her husband to go into hospital with her. However, the disability was identified as being caused by the surgical instruments used during the delivery.

Moreover, Dorothy was faced with several financial losses and bankrupts, after which she had to give up her parental rights to Harolyn, making her a ward of the state of California. In September of 1965 Dorothy died, the cause of death being a drug overdose, while her father, Harold, passed away in 2000.
