THEM. People like you and me… kids, young adults, parents, siblings, sons and daughters …  some have already begun to develop symptoms of the disease. Others talk about relatives who cannot take care of themselves anymore. And many wait, day after day, for the moment when the gene, like a strange inheritance they do not welcome, might also arrive into their lives, when the first signs of the disease appear in themselves or their siblings, or in their kids. But regardless of their situation, all of them have the added burden of living in conditions of extreme vulnerability, which compounds their situation of living with, or suffering from, Huntington’s disease.
