Kerry Wong lives in Westchester, New York, with her husband, the boy next door she had a crush on since she was a child. She was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 2015 after an eight-year search for answers. Though medically retired, Kerry remains an active volunteer, turning her focus toward advocacy for the sarcoidosis, arthritis, and chronic illness communities. She hosts a monthly sarcoidosis Twitter chat and is curating “Kaleidoscope,” a collection of rare disease stories. She is a co-host of the AiArthritis Voices 360 Talk Show and Dazzle4Rare campaign. Through her column, Kerry shares how chronic illness has led to transformation and invites readers to float with her “like a buttahfly.”
