What would it feel like not knowing?

For most of our life, we always get to know what's wrong, how to fix it, and what comes next. As we hear today, that is not always the case when it comes to diseases and for many people, they live life, not knowing what's wrong or how long they have. 

Our guest Kristine opens up about her story of feeling alone and a passion that came from it to find things in common within the rare disease community to help people feel they are not alone.
