We met Brianna when Andy got involved in the Big Brother, Big Sister program. Breanna’s younger brother and Andy are brothers in the program!
Breanna is one brave, strong happy girl with a progressive and terminal disease. She has been sick since she was 7 and she is 13 now.
Kids live about 10 years. Even with all the deterioration that her body has been riddled with and the damage to her brain her spirit is bright and she is one special girl. She enjoys movies, splash pads, socializing, dogs, books, alligators, buying restaurant food to eat at home, getting ice cream, cooking, baking, crafts…
Breanna loves family and enjoys hearing funny stories. Actually she enjoys funny stories from anyone. She is quite a jokester too. The other day she tried closing a closet door on her Mother and then butting her with her walker (she is not strong at all and her Mother cannot get hurt by her). Her Mother turned around to look at her and she was grinning from ear to ear. She was so proud of herself. Funny girl. She is one special girl who daily puts up with a lot of struggles, she never complains and she tries to make every day as happy and as fun as she can. Such a brave young lady! Breanna loves stuffed animals, make-up, nail polish, bows, and collecting chocolate and candy.

What Is Juvenile Onset Huntington’s Disease (JHD)?
Juvenile Onset Huntington’s Disease (JHD) is a form of Huntington’s disease (HD) that affects children and teenagers. Huntington’s disease is a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by progressively worsening motor, cognitive, behavioral, and psychiatric symptoms. JHD is caused by a mutation of the huntingtin gene called a “CAG repeat expansion”. The mutation results in gradual neuronal degeneration in the basal ganglia of the brain, which is responsible for coordination of movements, thoughts, and emotions. As JHD progresses, other regions of the brain undergo neuronal degeneration with diffuse and severe brain atrophy that is comparable to late stage Alzheimer’s disease.
