HD Heroes book release

Published date: 6 March, 2023

Huntington’s Disease Heroes includes stories from a scientist who switched from cancer research to studying Huntington’s after finding out her mother had tested positive for the disease, a young man whose biggest fear was testing gene negative and not inheriting the disease, and a woman who grew up in survival mode, unable to express her grief. We learn about the ways their lives are better off because of the hardships they have faced. By sharing these intimate parts of their lives, they are taking away the fear and stigma of living with Huntington’s in their families. They are giving a voice to this unheard rare disease community and empowering others to speak up.
