A Native Staten Islander and a graduate of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel-St. Benedicta Elementary School and Monsignor Farrell HS.

Chris faced each day’s challenges with courage, strength and determination since being diagnosed at an early age. His positive “Never Give up” attitude. was inspiring to all those around him. Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal genetic disorder. It deteriorates a person’s physical & mental abilities during their prime working years. HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of an parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Today, there are more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease.
