What is Huntington’s Disease?

Huntington’s Disease is a degenerative brain disease

that strikes in mid-life, usually between the ages of

30-40. People lose their ability to walk, talk, and even

10-20 years with this disease, their quality of life is

taken from them.

In 1998, about one year after getting married, Bev

received a paralyzing phone call that her birth father

had been diagnosed with HD. This meant every

sibling had a 50% chance of inheriting this disease.

She found out that she also carried the gene and

would suffer the same tragic fate.
