Monday night our special guest is KIMBERLY GIBSON. She is gene positive for Huntington's Disease and grew up surrounded by HD. Like so many HD families, she has helplessly watched as the people she loved died in front of her. As the caregiver to her grandfather at age four and her mother's caregiver by the time she was 22, she had almost no support and nowhere to turn.... That's why Kimberly founded the Faith & Hope Society, a non-profit organization with a few visions in mind, but mostly because, in the words of her aunt who is in the late stages, "No one should live through HD alone". She is proud to have the Faith & Hope Society and to be sharing her journey with you....The organization was formed exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. Their goal is to educate the public, raise awareness about Huntington's Disease, facilitate charitable events and to support present and future activities of geographically distant non-profits that share the same vision. FHS is funded by way of contributions from individuals, non-profit organizations, government agencies and corporations....The Faith and Hope Society is dedicated to enrich the lives that have been touched by Huntington's Disease. Their mission is to strengthen the Huntington's community through fund raising, spreading awareness, and individualized assistance to victims and their families....Check out the Faith & Hope Society website: www.faithandhopesociety.org
