Molly Patient Expert

Portland, Oregon
In early 2005, I was 28 years old and just beginning to break into a career as an opera singer. I had received contracts for three main stage productions, a culmination of ten years of work toward my goal of making opera my life's work. I was at a turning point; these performances could make or break my budding career. One morning in March of that year, I woke, stood up, and passed out,...

I am 24 years old. I was in a car accident when I was 17, and year later I started having daily level 10 headaches. I searched for an answer everywhere: Michigan, Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis. For 5 years I had no answers and no pain relief. I told my mom that I would try out one more doctor, but I was very ready to give up. The one doctor happened to be a neurosurgeon and helped me...

My name is Chris Hempel. In October 2007, my husband and I received life-threatening news about our cholesterol - but our lives weren't in danger. We learned that we were born with a defect in a critical cholesterol gene and that our precious six-year-old identical twin daughters, Addi and Cassi, inherited a double mutation - both genetic cholesterol defects. For many months, I'd known...

I was born on August 8th 1991. Two or more weeks premature. I spent the first three and a half years of my life in a Romanian orphanage, on the third year one of the caretakers attempted to kill me by throwing me down the stairs for complaining that she was stealing food. I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury with skull fracture. I remember waking up in the hospital. Because of the premature birth...

I lost a kidney and have just recently found a path to take because a Doctor took the time to listen and realized I was not a hypochondriac or a big overly sensitive, stressed, depressed woman. (yes, lots of justified sarcasm). I was athletic, very lean and continued to stay fit by enjoying bike rides and playing recreational co-ed softball. However, when I started a family at 25, I had...
