alive&wellThe Alive & Well documentary will be screening tonight here in San Diego at 7:30pm at the Gaslamp 15 (701 5th Ave San Diego).There currently are 62 tickets available.

ALIVE & WELL is a powerful documentary film about the human condition, which follows seven resilient people coming to terms with the profound reality of living with the hereditary chronic illness known as Huntington’s Disease (HD).

Subjects in the film range from a young woman hoping to start a family to a mother taking care of her symptomatic 6 year-old son and ailing husband; the drummer of a major country music band; a former NBC News journalist turned HD advocate, as well as a renowned scientist relentlessly searching for a cure.

Far from giving us a hopeless glimpse into life with terminal illness, ALIVE & WELL reminds us all of our ability to persevere with strength, despite life’s most difficult challenges.
