My name is Marianna Jamadi and I met my boyfriend Brad two days before he found out his father who has been absent for most of his life had been diagnosed with Huntington's Disease. Early this year he went through the genetic testing process to find out if he had inherited the disease as he has a 50/50 chance given that he is his offspring. The journey of starting a relationship, facing a question mark when it came to his health and reconnecting with his father was a roller coaster that we documented.
To our relief, Brad did not inherit the disease but we will forever be impacted by the experience. We decided to run the NYC marathon for the HDSA in order to raise awareness and funds for further advancements in regards to this disease. Please view the trailer above of 'Breaking Ice' to experience our journey and please consider donating any amount to help me reach my goal of $3500.
