S3E8: Managing the In-Between Years with Huntington’s Disease- Part Two

Continuing our conversation with warrior, Erin Paterson. Erin tested gene positive for Huntington’s Disease in her early thirties. After her life-changing diagnosis, Erin naturally began suffering from depression and also received the news she was infertile. Despite everything, she was determined to expand her family and to enjoy a meaningful life. Erin is now a proud mom, author, speaker, and international Huntington’s Disease advocate. Her work has appeared in two anthologies, and has been published on over ten different sites.  She wrote a monthly column for Huntington’s Disease News, and facilitated her new book including recruiting people to share their stories, coaching them through the writing process, finding sponsors, and publishing the book. She is a public speaker sharing her story both locally and internationally including at a recent conference for the Huntington’s Disease Youth Organization. Listen to Part Two as Erin shares her thoughts for others diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, her recommendations to loved ones as well as medical staff caring for HD patients and about her new book and its impact on her life.
