Living With Huntington's disease
Take a look at some of the experiences of people living with Huntington's Disease within Scotland and the family's which are affected by the condition.
29 year old Staccy was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease in 2011. My Huntington’s disease comes from my grandfather’s side of the family, who passed it on to my mum and then on to me.
Lisa was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease when she was 30. I only found out I had HD five years ago. It runs in my dad’s family, but he was adopted, so there are no other cases of it in the wider family, so it came as a real shock.
