Katrina’s medical journey began at 15 with her Ulcerative Colitis diagnosis, but as she found experts that provided much needed relief, she was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. She discusses her shift in outlook, her support system, her second pregnancy and what role PSC plays, or doesn’t, in her day to day life.

Kiersten knew the dangers of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis as a result of her father’s diagnosis. She faced her own diagnosis as a young adult and found that her PSC had a different progression. In the 3-year window that her doctor gave her, she had two pregnancies that included a lot of uncertainty, bed rest and ultimately, vibrant young children.
