Author’s Talk: Chasing My Cure by David Fajgenbaum MD

Chasing My Cure is the inspiring memoir of a young doctor, former college athlete, and champion for people suffering from a rare disease.

A former Georgetown quarterback nicknamed “The Beast,” David Fajgenbaum was also a force in medical school, where he was known for his unmatched mental stamina. But things changed dramatically when his organs began to fail inexplicably. Diagnosed with a rare and deadly disease, he decided to find his own cure through crowdsourcing research and similar histories, creating a blueprint for advancing rare disease research.

Join Dr. Fajgenbaum as he tells his incredible story of turning hope into action and answers questions about how the search for a diagnosis and treatment started his journey from doctor to patient to researcher, and what advice he has for those who are battling illnesses and for their loved ones.
