This week's episode features Ashley Pesi, a social worker at the HDSA National Youth Alliance, a PhD student, a mom, and a rare disease patient! Both she and her mom have Huntington's Disease, which is a genetic, neurodegenerative disease that is said to be a combination of ALS, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's. Ashley discusses the reality of never really accepting a diagnosis, the welcoming embrace of the HD community, her and her mom's diagnosis stories, family planning, and much more!
