Video: Living Courageously with Debilitating Illness

This video is the introduction to a second series of interviews with Huntington’s Disease patient Chris Furbee. The first series was shot a year earlier. His story is inspirational because of his courageous approach to living with one of the most awful diseases in existence. Chris discusses how he got diagnosed at UCSF and talks about the importance of the Huntington’s support group he’s in. He discusses how he lives with the knowledge that he will be losing control of all his muscles and will be completely dependent on someone else for literally everything—partly because of that and partly because of the inevitable cognitive loses.
