StoryCorps: Beth Fortwendel & Jarrod Fortwendel

Jan 29, 2013

Beth and Jarrod Fortwendel

  Beth Fortwendel has experienced what most people dread: a medical diagnosis with serious consequences. 

For Beth, it’s the autoimmune disease Scleroderma.

Last summer, Beth came to StoryCorps with her brother Jarrod, just a few weeks before her 34th birthday. 

Beth’s health has deteriorated since this conversation, but she says her spirits remain high.
