"Chasing the Cure is an effort to connect people who are underserved, undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and connect them directly with doctors who can help," Curry explained. "This is giving voice to the voiceless."

Curry came back to TV with her PBS arrangement, "We'll Meet Again," in January 2018.

Her own production company built up the series. It centers around 12 stories of people seeking for individuals who transformed them.

"We're living in such an acrimonious time, and I'm going the other direction," Curry said. "I want to find and do those stories that remind us that in fact our true nature is not where we are — that we actually are bigger and deeper and more generous than that."

On January 23, 2018, Curry likewise showed up on "The View" as guest co-host, where she discussed the controversies surrounding her departure from "Today."

Curry was born in November 1956 in Agaña, Guam, U.S. She was raised Catholic by her mom.
