Mary Lou Retton in a Fight For Her Life Against Rare Form of Pneumonia


Recommended Posts


Gymnast Mary Lou Retton, who became the first American to win the all-around gold at the 1984 Olympics, is "fighting for her life," her daughter said.



Retton has "a very rare form" of pneumonia, Retton's daughter McKenna Kelley posted to Instagram, and "is not able to breathe on her own."

Kelley said Retton, 55, has been in intensive care for more than a week.

Kelley started a fundraising campaign on Retton's behalf for medical expenses, writing that Retton does not have medical insurance.
