Just by looking at Chloe or meeting this vivacious, talented, and beautiful young lady, one would never know, or suspect that she is living with a chronic illness. At six years old, Chloe was diagnosed with Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD). PCD is a genetic disorder that attacks the cilia, tiny hair-like structures that line the airways of her respiratory tract. A person with PCD can’t clear their own airway secretions, which leads to repeated infections of the lungs.
