Show Notes

It was February 2016 and Chef Daniel Jacobs' future was looking particularly bright. But when progressive muscle weakness necessitated a visit to his doctor's office, he found himself facing a medical blow: the diagnosis of Kennedy's Disease.

In this week’s podcast, Jacobs talks candidly about his diagnosis, the challenges of living with a disease about which so little is known, and the deeply personal impact it’s had on his life and work. He also shares his motivation and goals in fund-raising for the Kennedy’s Disease Association. Along the way, we discuss his love for cooking, cheeseburgers and his unmatched lust for life.
