MEET OUR HOSTS

Meredith Patterson & Dustin Brayley met in 2011 while performing together in theatre in New York. After celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary, they will be sharing the stage once again as hosts and performers at HDSA’s Eighth Annual Freeze HD!

Meredith is an award-winning author and accomplished actress who has performed on Broadway and has appeared in countless television shows and films. Notably, Meredith played Peggy Sawyer in the Broadway revival of 42nd Street. In 1993 Meredith’s mother tested for the Huntington’s disease gene and was luckily negative, obliterating HD from her immediate family bloodline. Unfortunately, Meredith’s grandfather, great aunt, uncle and cousin all passed away from HD.

Dustin is the lead singer/guitar player of the multi-platinum selling band Trans-Siberian Orchestra and was recently seen on Broadway in Rocktopia where he shared the stage with such rock legends as Dee Snider from Twisted Sister and Robin Zander of Cheap Trick! He’s a founding member of Here Comes The Sun: A Celebration of the Music of The Beatles! Other credits include starring roles in the National tours of Rent, Saturday Night Fever, and Miss Saigon.

WHAT IS HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE?

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the faulty gene. Today, there are approximately 41,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. The symptoms of HD are described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously.
