    It's a sentence from a passage about life-threatning illnesses:

    What is it about someone’s life that would increase the chances that disease would progress to threaten it? (All is Well/Louise Hay & Mona Lisa Schulz)

    Does it mean: What must be going on in someone's life to increase the chances of developing a life threatening disease?

    I think you have summed it up very well. And I'd say your version of the sentence is actually clearer and better than the original. ;)
