My name is Bridget, my partner Jeff and I have made a documentary to honour my mother’s efforts to strengthen public awareness of Huntington’s disease. She wanted people to know what it was and how it affected entire families generation after generation.
I am a documentary editor and Jeff is a documentary Producer/Director. We want to share our story to help alleviate stigma and invigorate funding for family support and research into treatments. We believe that, as Charles Sabine says: “Communication leads to understanding and understanding dilutes fear and if we can lessen fear, hope can take its place.”
