Lesley Nantel

Chapter President for Huntington Society of Canada, Senior Project Coordinator Division of Family Practice

What are you most proud of?
Other than being a Mom, I would say, taking negative or challenging situations and turning them into positive change. For example, learning the news about my Dad being diagnosed with a terminal, hereditary, rare disease and getting involved with the Huntington's disease community to raise awareness, raise money, build support, and participate in the research for a cure.

What is your hope for the world?
My hope for the world would be, to find a cure or treatment for anyone living with a rare disease. At the very least, to ensure access to resources and life-changing advancements in rare disease diagnosis and treatment.

What is your wellness mantra?
-for health- Know better, do better
-for life- There will be difficult seasons, but so comes hope.
