Laura Kane joined us as a trustee on 1st April 2021. She wants you to know; "I am delighted to have the opportunity to become a Trustee at HDANI. I have a close family connection to Huntington’s Disease, with all four on my mother’s side of the family succumbing to this illness. I have also been through the testing process, participated in the HD-YAS medical research study and done fundraising events in my workplaces. My career to date has been based around consumer law and consumer protection and in the last five years has been in policy and strategy. This has given me experience in working with Board members to achieve good policy decisions and outcomes, which has sparked my interest to become a member of a Board myself. Naturally, I have gravitated towards HDANI due to my connection with the illness and the way in which this charity has supported my family/others affected by the illness over the years. I am looking forward to using my professional skills and personal experience to help further the objectives of HDANI. In my spare time, you’ll find me studying for a course in therapy, or at the beach with my dog, sometimes taking a dip in the sea if I’m brave enough!"
