Dr. Berkelhammer recently sat down with Chris Furbee. Chris tested positive for the inherited brain disorder, Huntington’s Disease (HD). Chris decided to gain control of his life and has been continually striving to be a positive influence in his own life and the lives of others. He finished his documentary, “Huntington’s Dance”, which documents his life with Huntington’s. It premiered at SlamDance 2014 in Park City and Chris was presented with a SlamDance 2014 Jury Special Mention for Most Compelling Personal Journey.
Dr. Berkelhammer and Chris both share their thoughts and experiences living with chronic health challenges and the practices that have helped them live meaningful lives.
All the footage in the interview from “Huntington’s Dance” is real. More information about Huntington’s Disease, Chris Furbee and his documentary can be found at huntingtonsdance.org.
