Kathy McRight of Calhoun City is among those that suffers from primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).
McRight’s husband Stephen is the minister of music at Derma Baptist Church. They both said dealing with PCD has been a constant learning experience.
“We had never heard of PCD,” Kathy McRight said. “It’s such a rare thing, but so many people have it and don’t know they have it.”
