MPR News Update for July 25

Monday, July 25, 2016

Good morning! Another nice day -- sunny with highs in the upper 70s to upper 80s. Here's a tear-jerker to start your week: Jerika Bolen, 14, of Appleton, Wis., has spinal muscular atrophy, which destroys nerve cells in her brain and spinal cord. She's in constant pain and it's only going to get worse. So this month she decided she'll move in to hospice while she can still make her own decisions, unhook her ventilator and die. But first she wanted to have a big party -- a prom, she called it. Friends and strangers from around the country showed up on Friday night to throw it for her, USA Today reports. | Forecast
