Join the Facebook Live event (soon!) on Pope Francis’s historic audience with Huntington’s disease families

I want to invite the Huntington’s disease community – and all potential new supporters of the cause – to participate in my Facebook Live interview about Pope Francis’s historic HD audience on Wednesday, May 31, at 11 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Conducted by San Diego Union-Tribune reporter Bradley Fikes, the interview will take place at this link: j.mp/sdutface. Participants can send questions and comments.

The interview will discuss details of the papal audience, where Francis declared that HD should be “hidden no more.” It will also allow for reflection on the significance of the event for the HD movement. (Click here to watch highlights of the audience).

Building on #HDdennomore’s goal of increasing global awareness of HD and removing the shame associated with the disease, we in the HD community can use the interview to expand our base of supporters.

Please invite others beyond your regular circle of friends, relatives, and acquaintances to watch.

I don't always comment, but I always read your blog, Gene, and I want to thank you again and again for all that you do.
