March 9, 2012 is the day that changed my life! My name
is Polly, I am 21 years old and this is my story of how I
came to know Huntington’s disease. My Dad is adopted
and was never interested in finding his birth mother nor
would he even talk about it. In May 2011 curiosity got the
better of me and I decided that I would begin the search
myself.

Since learning of Huntington’s disease I have come
across many different opinions from those who have
never heard of HD, those who have been diagnosed
with HD and those who may have it. The time when I
contemplating getting tested. I knew from the very
beginning that I wanted to know. My own personal
belief is that in knowing you can come to acceptance
and in accepting you feel empowered to do
something!

On Christmas Eve of 2010, my brother Jim died of
Huntington’s disease. At the time, his diagnosis was
a secret. Most people believed he had succumbed to
advanced colon cancer, after suddenly being
admitted to the hospital that November and
undergoing emergency surgery. >

Bruises mark the sweet face, arms, and back of my
son. They're not the marks of boyish shenanigans,
but the marks of abuse by someone who's supposed
to protect him.

The bruises make me weep inside, but on the
outside, I rage, determined to find justice and
compassionate care for my child.

A message from the
Editors:
The Huntington's Post is
honored to give our
community a place to write
about their experiences and
struggles with the
circumstances that we as
parents, caregivers and
family members are faced
with every day in caring for
our HD and JHD loved ones.
We believe that every HD
individual and family
member is entitled to
compassionate care, and
should be treated with
respect and dignity at all
times. We are ever mindful
that not all facilities and care
providers are educated
about how to best care for
our HD loved ones. Thus, we
must be resourceful and find
ways to educate, sometimes
forcefully, those whom we
have placed in charge.
We give thanks to all of our
contributing writers for their
bravery in writing these
articles and sharing their
experiences with us so that
we may all take note and
learn.

Robin Williams touched my soul and tickled my
funny-bone for the next 36 years.

In a world where celebrity overdoses and suicides are a
media staple, Williams' suicide resonated in a way that
few others have. People were stunned. His death
became a topic of heated discussion on social media: is
suicide the act of a coward, the act of someone who is
selfish enough to not think of the ones left behind?
