My husband is finishing the CREST-E study and we both participate in Enroll-HD.  I believe clinical trials are vital to our quest for a cure or new effective treatments for HD.  I am a Clinical Trials Diplomat because I want to help others understand both the importance of clinical trials and the ease of participating in clinical trials.  I have spoken to the Middle Tennessee and Louisville, Kentucky, support groups about clinical trials and would be happy to speak to groups in Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia.

My husband was diagnosed with HD when he was in his 50's. We did not have a family history and had no idea this was even a possibility, because we had never heard of HD before his diagnosis. I am doing this in my husband’s memory and for my children, to make this the last generation with HD.
