Harry needs a hug: A story for children learning to deal with Huntington’s Disease

The brand new book Harry needs a hug helps children to understand how to deal with Huntington’s disease. The book is presented in an informative, sensitive and easy to understand way.

The aim of Harry needs a hug is to help children understand what living in a family affected by Huntington’s disease means. The blurb of the book reads:

“Harry is a little boy, who has a best friend called Betty. One day, the doctors tell his Daddy that he has something called ‘Huntington’s disease’ (HD). Harry talks to his best friend Betty, who helps him to understand HD and supports him through his worries.”

The book is released by Campaign For My Brain. The UK-based initiative was founded in 2018 by Emma Terranova Davis. On the campaign’s website we can learn that Emma’s mother has inherited Huntington’s disease:

– My Mum Jennifer battles with a devastating neurological disease every day, Huntington’s disease. I was driven to start this campaign after struggling to get the right care and support.
