Why Huntington's disease (HD)? 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 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. Today, there are approximately 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. In approximately 10% of cases, Juvenile Huntington’s disease (JHD) affects children or adolescents and JHD typically progresses more rapidly than adult onset HD. The symptoms of HD are described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases – simultaneously.
