My name is Kelly Samulski.  I am 14-years-old.  My dad, Adam Samulski, has Huntington's disease.  I am walking for him.  I am walking for a cure.

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.

Please consider making a donation to my personal fundraising page by clicking the ‘Donate’ button at the top of this page. Every penny makes a difference!

My dad and I thank you for your support!  <3
