Thank you for that Jaq, such a heartbreaking story . This newspaper does appear to be writing more articles on HD. They did the big Alzheimers campaign for drugs too last year.

Thanks for posting Jaq.

It doesn't matter how many times I read a new HD story, it breaks my heart everytime.
The more media cover we can get like this, the better.

Heartbreaking....

We must continue to support the work of the brilliant scientists who spend their time trying to find a treatment to slow down or stop the progression of this terrible disease, the same people who will one day find a cure.
I think that there is more promise in the world of drug therapies today than at any other time.

Wow, what a story, full marks to Fiona, just shows the strengths we can have when we need them, many people here are enduring the same one way or another, it sort of replenishes my fighting spirit, nowhere near that yet, but we can't afford to crumble, a real inspiration,

Thanks for the link Jaq,
