“I come from an HD family.” Kate Miner, HDF Gala 2018

Kate Miner, of the band Miner, spoke at our October 22, 2018 Gala: “I come from an HD family. We’ve had Huntington's disease in our family’s genetic makeup our entire lives but we didn’t know about it until the summer of 2014. That was the year my mom’s sister Diane was diagnosed. This diagnosis had implications for my mom, my sisters and me…We were totally different people as we were trying to come to terms with this new reality…we felt lost at sea, we were in a place of uncertainty…we wanted to find a way back to yesterday.”
