Moraine Park to feature Alive and Well Documentary

by abemis8. November 2013 08:02

One in 10,000 people in America have Huntington’s Disease but it’s still a disease most people are unfamiliar with. A new documentary film, Alive and Well, is looking to change that.  Moraine Park Technical College will be hosting a free showing of the new documentary film, Alive and Well at all three of their campus locations on the following dates and times:

- Fond du Lac Campus: Monday, Nov. 11, 11:30 a.m.
- West Bend Campus: Tuesday, Nov. 12, 12:00 p.m.
- Beaver Dam Campus: Wednesday, Nov. 13, 11:30 a.m.

Alive and Well follows seven resilient people, including Trey Gray, drummer from country band Brooks and Dunn, coming to terms with the profound reality of living with the hereditary chronic illness know as Huntington’s Disease (HD). Huntington’s Disease causes a progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain that can impact a person’s functional abilities such as movement, thinking and cognitive disorders.

Registration is not required, but is appreciated. Contatct Samantha Saeger, Fond du Lac campus student life specialist at ssaeger@morainepark.edu or 800-472-4554 ext. 3101.
