Deciding to go through genetic testing can be one of the most difficult decisions in the life of a young person impacted by Huntington's disease. Often, they have seen their family change as symptoms arrive, have been caregivers themselves and begin to contemplate how HD will affect their own future.
RJ (US) and Emma (UK) sat down with Wes Solem, HDYO Education Committee Member and Genetic Counselor from HD Genetics, to share their experiences throughout the testing process and how their lives have changed since learning they tested negative.
