Phil’s Kids

Publication date: Apr 24, 2019

Phil’s Kids was set up in memory of Dr Phil, who sadly passed away from Huntington’s Disease (HD) in 2014. Whenever Dr Phil lost a patient he would immediately go and look at the new-born babies. He did this, he said, because it reminded him of the circle of life, of life continuing, of new hope and who knew what amazing feats these new humans might achieve. It was because of his belief in future generations, the possibilities of medical science and his great love of children that we decided to start Phil’s Kids. Stopping the passing of the gene is the only way to reduce the numbers of those with HD. Phil’s Kids aims to assist people to do just that. By offering financial support, information, advice and peer support for PGD-IVF we hope to be able to help the HD community to stop this horrendous disease in its tracks. The charity wants this generation within a family to be the last generation in that family to have HD, ever.
