Jonathan Kile

Jonathan Kile was diagnosed with VEDS in 2016 following a series of life-threatening emergencies, including an iliac artery rupture and an aortic dissection. His diagnosis at the age of 42 also offered an explanation for his mother’s early death when he was 5 years old. In this episode, Jon talks about what he survived, how he copes with his diagnosis, and how he feels about the diagnosis of his two kids.
