Adriane Robinson

A problem solver by nature and a social worker by occupation — That is my friend Adriane Burdette (Terrell) Robinson. She graciously agreed to be interviewed in 2012 for the TWITCH documentary on Huntington’s Disease and genetic testing. In her interview she explained why she decided to leave the work she so loved and go out on disability. It was hard on her, but she knew she had to do it. Every thing in Adriane’s life has been hard on her but she’s always forged forward. In spite of everything Huntington’s has taken from Adriane, it has not taken her willingness to fight for herself and her children.
