We Say Good-bye to Leo Rafail
After 17 years of incredible dedication, we say good-bye to Leo Rafail, our friend and social worker for the Chapter. Leo has become a part of the HD family in Indiana and throughout the country. He has been tireless in speaking out as an advocate and in training others to care for those with HD. He has touched the lives of hundreds. Now Leo has the opportunity to become a a Program Director for the ALS Foundation, and we wish him well although we'll miss him! Not to fear however, Leo will remain active in our community through his ongoing work with the Thomas Cellini Huntington's Disease Foundation. Best of luck and thank for your years of service, Leo!Leo has been succeeded by Thelma Moore as social worker, who served on our board over a decade ago and has encountered HD in her own family. We welcome her and will profile her experience later this month.
