The Huntington's Disease Alliance is pleased to announce a new series of lived experiences, 'Family Voices'.
You will hear from families across the Huntington’s disease community in this new series of talks brought to you by the Huntington’s Disease Alliance UK and Ireland. For our first episode, we are delighted to welcome Melanie Pearson who will talk about the impact of Huntington's disease on her family and about why it inspired her to write a book.
"For all the agony and distress it can cause, it’s amazing how Huntington’s can bring people together – people in the same situation, who understand. This is a short talk from the personal point of view of a survivor. My mum and brother both had the illness and I grew up at risk so it’s something that has deeply affected my life. I’ve written a memoir about my family and the impact HD has had on us all, and how we coped. I hope that sharing our experience might be helpful for other families."
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
A copy of Melanie's book can be purchased through our shop.
