Surviving and Thriving with Chronic Illness
February 28, 2017
A personal Journey with chronic illness.
There are about seven thousand rare genetic diseases that affect more than 30 million Americans… and millions more worldwide. Time is against them. It often takes more than seven years to reach a proper diagnosis. And an astounding 95-percent of rare diseases have no FDA-approved treatment. The Balancing Act’s Behind the Mystery Series has highlighted many of them… and it all started with one very personal story. Ilana Jacqueline joins Olga Villaverde as we learn more about her courageous battle with a chronic disease. Not only is she living… she’s thriving…but the battle has not been easy.
We're learning about a cutting-edge technology that identifies potential disease risk in embryos, helping IVF parents make informed decisions.
