On behalf of the HDSA Tennessee Chapter, thank you for visiting the website of “The 21st Cure Huntington’s Disease Golf Tournament “. We are a fun golf tournament with a lot of trimmings. For the golfers, your entry fee includes a tournament t-shirt, driving range balls, longest drive, hole in one and closest to the pin prizes, plenty of good food and cold beverages. We also encourage non golfers to join us at the club house for the silent auction, live music and the Awards Banquet. We are a close HD community/family and want to give a special invite to all HD families to join us. Our two main goals are to raise money to assist HDSA’s efforts to improve the lives of those affected by HD and to give HD families a day that they look forward to.
HD is a degenerative brain disease that is caused by a faulty gene. Symptoms of HD are Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS in a 20 year decline. The final years requiring full care. Than there’s the most cruel part of this devastating disease, each child of a parent with HD have a 50/50 chance to inherent the faulty gene. That is why we do our part to help find a cure. There are amazing things going on in research for a cure. However, if the scientists were to bump into cure for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or ALS, that would be a beautiful thing.
The gentleman pictured is Jimmy Lindsey, he is a part of our HD family. He battles HD and is an inspiration in the way he does so, with a cool little swagger. Jimmy resonates love and is surrounded by family and friends that are dedicated in the fight to cure HD for all HD families. Last year, we had a very very generous anonymous donation of $400,000 in Jimmy’s honor! As I have told Jimmy’s story to our HD family, I have seen hope in some eyes, that had little hope. Jimmy, this is all because of the love that resonates around you! It is our pleasure to continue to do what we do, in your honor!
Haley and Austin Schwarts are two of our most dedicated volunteers and a part of our HD family. Their mother, Nikki Durfee Schwarts (age 40) lost her battle with HD. Nikki will be added to the family “In Memory Of” sign, along with her mother, aunt and uncle. HD families are very special people, I hope it’s no surprise that Nikki was also surrounded by love.
Our family is heartbroken, since our last golf tournament, we have lost two of our loved ones to this cruel disease.
Kristin Cordero (age 44) died two months after attending last years tournament. It was always a pleasure to be around Kristin and her wonderful family. Our hope is that we gave Kristin a day to look forward to. She was also surrounded by love and is missed by so many.
