The Huntington Society of Canada has launched a new PSA campaign entitled "Do You Really Want to Know?"
MY REALITY... I have a 50% CHANCE of inheriting Huntington disease and my genetic test results will tell me my fate.
CANADA'S REALITY... Genetic testing is available to all Canadians. WE ARE ALL AT RISK of our genetic information being used against us in Canada. Canada is the only G8 country that DOES NOT PROTECT is citizens against genetic discrimination.
