Huntington’s disease patients suffer a lethal, incurable combination of Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, and schizophrenia. And anyone born to someone with Huntington’s has a 50/50 chance of suffering the same fate. They can be tested to predict their genetic future and prevent their children inheriting the disease, but the decision is far from easy. “You can never not know your status again. You can never turn the clock back”. Wanting to have children, Jeff and Megan Carroll must decide if they really want to know.

Panel discussion with Charles Sabine (Broadcast Journalist & HDA Spokesperson), Prof. Sarah Tabrizi (Clinical Neurologist, UCL), and Bill Crowder (Head of Care Services, England & Wales, HDA)
