A Different Kind of Bucket List

Kristen D'Antonio was diagnosed with a rare genetic illness called Neurofibromatosis type 2 three years ago, a disorder of the central nervous system that forms tumors on the nerves that will eventually lead to deafness. Music is her life and so she has put together a Bucket List of artists she would like to see in concert before she loses her hearing. You can read more here and watch the video below for the whole story. I first learned of Kristen via newspaper article and was impressed by her effort to make the most of her hearing while she has it. It also makes me wonder if there are other similar Bucket Lists out there, related to the loss of an organ or a chronic illness.
