Tonight we will talk about preimplantation genetic diagnosis or (PGD) for Huntington’s disease with Dr. Goodman. Read her article on www.HDDrugworks.org titled: PGD for the Prevention of HD. http://hddrugworks.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=336&Itemid=30
“For more than a decade, couples at risk for Huntington's disease have had the option to conceive an unaffected child by utilizing the reproductive process of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). If PGD became common practice in HD, it could eliminate the majority of disease for the next generation. So if PGD has the potential to mostly "wipe out" HD for the next generation, why is it so rarely utilized?”
We will discuss the pros and cons of this novel approach to eliminating HD for every in the generations to come. Tune in to a very interesting and informative program with Dr. LaVonne Goodman.
Chris Furbee and Matt Austin are here with us to talk about their recently finished independent films about their lives and perspectives living with Huntington's disease. Robert Rippberger produced and finished Matt Austin's film "Breaking the Cycle" and is now promoting both films as a double feature. Chris Furbee's film is titled "Huntington's Dance".

When something burst inside David's head, both Donna and David's lives changed forever. Before each of David's three brain surgeries, Donna had only one request of David's surgeons. She implored, "I don't care how you give David back to me, just give him back to me." David did return to Donna, but as a different person. Donna fell in love all over again with this newer version of her husband. David's TBI resulted in a “fork in the road” for both David and Donna.
