Dick and Karen Raun

Karen Raun of Kansas City, Mo., has lived with ET for 13 years. She is a retired school health aide. Previous to her onset of ET, she devoted a lot of time to crafting, and enjoyed playing card games with her girlfriends. Although she has had deep brain stimulation to treat ET, her activities are mostly limited to reading and TV. Her husband, Dick, says, “Participating in the video project was important to her because when she was diagnosed, we could not find much information on how ET might affect her as it progressed.”
