Listen in to my conversation with Kate Peters, a veteran of the U.S. Navy & U.S. Marine Corps and combat veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Kate is currently battling ALS.
Here I chat with military veteran of both the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Navy, Kate Peters. She served in the USMC 2007-2015, USN 2015-2020 and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Kate is a mother of two boys, three and five and was medically retired from the military after being diagnosed with ALS, a fatal disease that has no cure. She was diagnosed with ALS in 2020 a few weeks after her second son was born, after about 2 and 1/2 years of symptoms and a misdiagnosis. I talk to Kate about her military experience, the connection between ALS & the military and her upcoming BIG adventure of traveling the world for a year with her young family. Kate is considered a slow progressor with ALS, having symptoms for almost 6 years and still being fully independent and able to take care of her young boys. She's been able to witness some blessings after being given a terminal diagnosis and shares some beautiful life advice that will encourage us all. Thank you for listening in and sharing with a friend.
