When Lucy Wiese was three years old, she was diagnosed with a rare disease called Job’s Syndrome (or Hyper IgE Syndrome). For Jan Wiese, Lucy’s mom, that was the beginning of her journey as a full-time caregiver. On today’s episode, Jan and I talk about the trajectory of her daughter’s serious illness and the experimental treatment Lucy received at the NIH, how she and her husband have navigated caregiving for Lucy while also parenting their son Joel, and her hopes for Lucy’s future and her own.
