Olivia Eiger

My name is Olivia and I’m 17 years old with Juvenile Huntington’s Disease.  I was diagnosed right before my 13th birthday a few years after my father.  Living with this terrible disease has changed so much of my life.  However, I still attend school and am a senior this year.  I also participate in Girl Scouts.  My favorite thing is PT where I get to ride Fritz a horse at hippotherapy.  I also have a service dog Larry who helps me with walking, retrieving items and can go get my mom if I need help.  Everyday I fight this disease.
