In Part 2 of our interview about Huntington's Disease -- a genetic, neurological affliction that slowly diminishes the brain's ability to control physical and mental functions, usually leading to death -- we hear Melissa Bilardi and Daniel Medina discuss why Huntington's disease is less known than other life-threatening afflictions. Bilardi and Medina talk about organization Help4HD International, which offers a support group in the Inland Empire. Medina, a Moreno Valley resident, also talks about research being done at UC Riverside on potential treatments for Huntington's disease.
Make sure to listen to Part 1 of our interview, posted above.
Huntington’s disease is a long misunderstood, genetic, degenerative, fatal, and still incurable affliction. Huntington’s disease starts by slowly attacks the brain’s ability to control physical and neurological functions, and continues to progress until the affliction eventually leads to death. “HD” is particularly virulent to children. There hasn’t been any local support orgs for people or families afflicted by Huntingtonm’s disease… until now. KVCR's Ken Vincent has Part 1 of a 2-part interview with Melissa Bilardi, the President and CEO of Help4HD International, and Daniel Medina, Help4HD's International Affairs Director, who is a resident of the Inland Empire.
