Enduring pain for someone she loves

Nov. 18 - Microbiology and Molecular Genetics graduate student Kristen Westdorp had run two marathons in her life prior to 2016, but the second one was more than eight years in her past, and she was ok with that. She was diving in to her graduate studies, running a casual five miles three times per week, and doing the types of things other students do to fill their time. But then her mother, Cheryl, was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease in 2014 at age 50, and, as can be expected, her perspective began to be shaped and colored by the human devastation taking place before her eyes.
