Support Me

The image above shows some of the people I referred to on the Team Joanne  Page. They are some of  the "unintended family" that I'm in the fight with.  As I've said many times before and will continue to say as long as I'm part of this group please help me to help them.   Every dollar you contribute is greatly appreciated.  Remember, no amount is too small. Thank you for your continued support.

From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today, hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their family. 

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.
