?Florida resident Shelby Williams is a former reporter for WFXL Fox 31 in Albany, Georgia. She has also made several appearances on different news and radio stations in Florida.  

Shelby has covered a wide range of news topics but now she is on the other side of the coin.

She is at risk of inheriting Huntington’s disease (HD). This 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 usually 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 that causes HD.
