If you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?
This was a difficult decision between cancer and Huntington’s Disease. While I am more familiar with cancer and losing family members left and right in the past to various forms of cancer, cancer treatment has come a long way in leaps and bounds.
Huntington’s Disease doesn’t have a lot of the studies and alternative treatments that cancer has. I first learned about it on House, M.D, the character Remy Hadley lost her mother to it. Later on she discovers that she tested positive for the gene, despite not wanting to know she had it.
Huntington’s Disease slowly kills you. You eventually lose all bodily function until you’re left as nothing but an unresponsive shell.
I wouldn’t want anyone to go through that, so the cure I would create is for HD.
