Tuesday, December 1, 2015, is #GivingTuesday and charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Join HDSA and be a part of this global celebration of generosity.
The Huntington's Disease Society of America is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today and hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
HDSA's network of chapters, affiliates, HDSA Centers of Excellence, social workers and support groups provides a seamless connection for help, education and outreach to HD families and health care professionals across the United States.
Huntington’s disease 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 during their prime working years and has no cure. HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Today, there are 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease.
But there is hope. You can have the satisfaction in knowing that your donation will help HDSA to provide Help for Today and Hope for tomorrow for those affected by HD.
