In 2007 Kari was diagnosed with brain aneurysms along with FMD. She has been in contact with Natalie Niekro, she is the beautiful daughter of Joe Niekro (Major League Baseball Player- played for the Twins) Joe Niekro passed away from cerebral aneurysm. Natalie started a foundation, the Joe Niekro Foundation to raise awareness and research money for aneurysms. She did a fundraiser in 2010 with the Minnesota Twins, and Dr. Robert Brown, Director of Neurology - Mayo Rochester. The Joe Nieko Foundation and MWVA are teaming up to fight brain aneurysms!
