Huntington’s disease is a long misunderstood, genetic, degenerative, fatal, and still incurable affliction.  Huntington’s disease starts by slowly attacks the brain’s ability to control physical and neurological functions, and continues to progress until the affliction eventually leads to death.  “HD” is particularly virulent to children.  There haven’t been any support organizations for people or families afflicted by Huntington’s disease in the Inland Empire… until now.  KVCR's Ken Vincent has Part 1 of a 2-part interview with Melissa Bilardi, the President and CEO of Help4HD International, and Daniel Medina, Help4HD's International Affairs Director, who is a resident of the Inland Empire.

Make sure to listen to Part 2 of our interview, posted below.

Ken Vincent has retired. We appreciate the way he shared his expertise with many of our young interns and reporters over the nearly eight years he spent as KVCR's lead journalist and Morning Edition host. We wish him a happy and relaxing retirement as he spends more time in his garden and, as he mentioned, more time on the golf course. Thanks Ken!
