About The Show

RENEE’S BRAIN is an inspiring documentary that follows New Zealand’s most severe sufferer of Tourette Syndrome, 25-year-old Renee Harvey, as she embarks on a surgical journey that could save her life, yet may also take her life. Debilitated and isolated by increasingly extreme symptoms of Tourette’s, and desperate for a normal life, RENEE, the mother of a 7-year-old boy, has exhausted every medical avenue – from Ritalin and other prescribed medications to behavior therapy. Nothing has worked.

Renee's Brain is made with the support of NZ On Air
