Kim Pegula has been diagnosed with expressive aphasia.

Per Jessica’s essay in The Players Tribune, the athlete shared the painful reality that her mom, Kim, has been diagnosed with expressive aphasia.

“She is dealing with significant expressive aphasia and significant memory issues, Jessica wrote. “It is hard to deal with and it takes a lot of patience to communicate with her, but I thank God every day that we can still communicate with her at all.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, aphasia occurs “suddenly after a stroke or a head injury.” It’s also said to “come on gradually from a slow-growing brain tumor or a disease that causes progressive, permanent damage (degenerative).”

Unfortunately, the outlet shares that “the severity of aphasia depends on a number of things, including the cause and the extent of the brain damage.”

This falls in line with Jessica sharing that Kim experienced cardiac arrest in June 2022.

Additionally, based on Jessica's sharing that her mom “can read, write, and understand pretty well, but she has trouble finding the words to respond,” the National Aphasia Association (NAA) shares that Kim’s symptoms directly reflect signs of “non-fluent aphasia aka Broca’s aphasia.”
