As you might know I was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease about two years ago. It’s been a hard couple years coping with this life changing news. The HDSA Hope walk is happening next Saturday! This walk gives will help raise money to fund many trials around the world to help find a cure to this devastating disease. There is a new study in the UK that is on the brink of a symptom suppressant. This is the fartherest any study has ever come!!! I need your help! My goals is to raise $200 of sponsorship for me to walk. Every little bit helps! If you think you can please follow the link. I love all of you!
