There was to be a press conference today where Sarah’s family and doctors were going to offer information on Sarah’s current status.  That has now been canceled due to their desire for further medical testing that will occur today and throughout the week.

“Late (Sunday) night, Rory Bushfield, Sarah’s husband, and members of her family met with physicians to discuss the results of Sarah’s most recent neurological tests and assessments.”

“Based on the information they received, we regret to inform you that they have decided to cancel today’s press conference in order for further tests to be conducted this morning and in the coming days.”

“The family wants to express its deep appreciation for the overwhelming support Sarah has received from all over the world. The family ask that media, fans and friends continue to keep Sarah and Rory in their prayers. Rory and Sarah’s family remain at the hospital.” –  Canadian Freestyle Association, from news release this morning.
