My KD Story: Kate Walker

When she was 12, Kate was diagnosed with Friedreich’s ataxia — a rare, progressive neurogenetic condition that affects 4,000 individuals in the U.S. and 15,000 individuals worldwide. She’s now a third-year University of Arkansas student studying supply chain management and marketing, while also working toward a cure for FA as a marketing intern for the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance and the founder of a nonprofit, Make It Happen CureFA.
