Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg Want to Cure All Diseases by 2100

 

Last week, Gayle King, CBS Good Morning news, interviewed Mark Zuckerburg and his wife Priscilla Chan, Facebook leaders, about many topics. I watched some of the interview and, thankfully, saw the discussion that could impact the Huntington’s disease community around the world.

Their goal is to cure all disease diseases by 2100.

        They have committed to 3 billion dollars to achieve this goal.

I won’t be around, if you’re a baby boomer, maybe my great or great, great grandchildren will be on this earth.

After watching the interview, I got to thinking, “I wonder if Huntington’s disease (HD) is high on the list?”

I say this because I believe Huntington’s disease is the cruelest disease on the planet!

All diseases cause some level of suffering, but HD doesn’t just affect the patient, but everyone in the family and the suffering can go on for many years; my two (2) sisters-in-law struggled with HD for 17 years.    What is Huntington’s Disease?

I am a Huntington’s disease advocate, volunteering for Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA), the premier nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease and their families. http://HDSA.org

We Can Never Lose HOPE…

To learn more about my Huntington’s disease journey and the book I published to raise awareness, generated dollars to donate to HDSA, visit https://theresecrutchermarin.com

Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s is available on many book websites like Amazon.
