Concert for HD Awareness at The Guild

Most of you are already aware that my brother Peter has HD. The PEI Chapter of the Huntington Society of Canada is holding a fund raiser and awareness concert at The Guild April 18/10 at 3pm. See attached for details and see this web site for added info:

Huntington disease (HD) is an inherited brain disorder whereby cells in specific parts of the brain die. It is a genetic disorder that affects about one in every 10,000 Canadians. The defective gene was discovered in 1993 and human drug trials are, for the first time, being launched in 2010.

If you would like to hear what Peter sounded like back in the 70s, listen to this recording of California Lady


Hope to see you on the 18th.

- Gerry
