Before we started talking about this Sunday's upcoming walk at Cony High School in Augusta, I had never heard of HHT (Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia). It causes bleeding in parts of the body and can be fatal. In fact, you may have it and not even be aware! It is hereditary as the name suggests and it affects about 1 in 5,000 people.

Dr. LaVerdiere, who works at MaineGeneral, actually diagnosed Jessica several years ago.

I found this a fascinating interview and encourage you to listen and find out more!
