Curator Gretchen Hasse has lived with severe knee pain since she was a teenager. The pain and damage in her joints became more debilitating over time, and enduring it shaped her character. In the fall of 2018, with health insurance available in recent years through the ACA, she was able to get 2 full knee replacements. Successful surgeries have reshaped her life in ways that are still becoming clear to her.
