David Hart

As some people will know, David Hart who had A-T died at the end of August of pancreatic cancer. The son of the A-T Society’s counsellor Helen Hart and her husband John, David lived a remarkably full and active life.

Like his brother Andrew, who died some years ago, David had the IVS40 mutation which occurs in more than 20 people with A-T in the UK and Ireland, and gives a more slowly developing ‘variant’ form of the condition.

In spite of his disabilities, David had a wide range of interests and was involved in many different activities, so much so that he was honoured with an obituary in the Scotsman, which you can read here

The thoughts and sympathies of people across the A-T community are with his family, and we hope that this recognition of David’s achievements will be of comfort to them.
