Welcome to this December 17 show. Help 4 HD Radio has designated the month of December for celebrating our amazing HD advocates. Tonight we are happy to introduce Papa Mike, Raima and The Wilderness Kids as our incredible special guests. Best known as the Wilderness Kids Firewood and Maple Syrup of Saco Maine, the Wilderness Kids are Mike and Raima's grandchildren, Brandon Irving, age 13, and his sisters Elizabeth (11) and Karissa (8) who founded this amazing program in memory of their two uncles Chris and John Irving, who have passed from Huntington's disease.

The children’s father, Nicholas, who is the youngest brother of Chris and John, does not have the genetic disease. He was one of the lucky few who did not inherit the mutated gene which causes HD.  Papa Mike and the children sell firewood and maple syrup to help raise money for other families who are struggling to care for loved ones with the disease.

We are going to talk about the kids' dream to make a difference in the lives of all HD and JHD families around the world. What an amazing family and what an amazing story.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May everyone have a wonderful and safe Holiday Season.
