Thank you for tuning in! This is Melissa Biliardi, your host on "Help4HD–The HD View". I am a mom, caregiver and advocate for my son who has Huntington's disease (HD). As the founder of Help4HD International Inc, I have made it my mission to help him and others who are affected by JHD (juvenile Huntington’s disease) and HD by promoting awareness and education to everyone who will listen. Help 4 HD Radio broadcasts live on every Tuesday providing vital information and inspiration to our Huntington's community. This station is a forum for people to discuss all of the issues surrounding our daily JHD/HD lives. As the premier radio program for Huntington's disease, we have been blessed to interview many of our JHD/HD researchers, medical professionals, and pharmaceutical organizations since 2010. Don’t forget to share this channel with your colleagues, family and friends. Talk to you soon!
