Book chronicling local man’s 20-year experience with Huntington’s disease now available

'HD Gene Life Story – How it Began'

Rick Fisher has released his book HD Gene Life Story – How it Began, his story of his experience with Huntington’s disease.

Many people have already benefited from Rick’s experiences and attitude. Fisher’s beliefs have kept him centered through his disease, along with being loving and forgiving.

His passion for photography has also been an outlet of his heart.

Release of HD Gene Life Story – How it Began was driven by Fisher’s commitment to his 20-year fight with Huntington’s, which he continues to do from his home in Comox Valley Seniors Village.

He also has the great support of his daughter Deanna, who is following her path to help others by enrolling in the care aide program.

Rick will be celebrating the launch of his book and his 20 years of successes fighting and living with Huntington’s, Nov. 5 from 5-9 p.m. in the main lounge of Comox Valley Seniors Village at 4640 Headquarters Rd. in Courtenay.

To obtain a copy of the book, call Rick at CVSV at 250-331-4149.
