Mary & Peter have lived in their dream house for 14 years, but an upstairs master suite and declining health have convinced them that moving to a smaller apartment in a retirement community is a better solution long term for the still active 84 year olds.  Surrounded by much that will be sold in an estate sale or given away, the decision to leave is difficult and stressful.

Back working for Psychology Today Magazine for a story on Orphan Disease.  David is a 20 something medical student also working on his MBA all the while fighting an incurable disease which gets very little money invested by drug companies because of the small number of patients.   Research money is also hard to find.   As a result David must travel the country to find doctors that are familiar enough with his disease to be able to treat him.   A former quarterback for a major university, David also started a non-profit organization to help college students deal with the grief of losing a parent while in school.   David's own experience of losing his mother to cancer led to him to seek out others who had similar grief.   The resulting organization is now nationwide.

The Chicken or the Egg?

Now we know!
