Documentary – Alive & Well (2013)

Presented by Huntington’s Disease Society of America. A powerful documentary film about the human condition, Alive & Well follows seven resilient people coming to terms with the profound reality of living with the hereditary chronic illness known as Huntington’s Disease (HD). Its subjects range from a young woman hoping to start a family, to a former NBC News journalist turned HD-advocate, as well as a renowned scientist relentlessly searching for a cure. It is not an exposé into a hopeless illness, but a reminder of human strength and perseverance. Huntington’s Disease Society of America hopes to inspire greater understanding of HD and fight the stigma associated with it, and members of the organization will join us to spread this message.
