Hi, It's time for the HDSA fundraising event in the Portland area this year.
There has been some promising news this year about an effective treatment that is in the phase two testing process. It's all too scientific for me to explain here but I am hopeful that all of our fundraising dollars are paying off! I trust the experts at the Huntington's Disease Society and the medical community dedicated to research will keep using the funds we contribute to find a cure in my lifetime!!
As you probably know I am gene positive for Huntington's which is an inherited genetic disease. I am not showing symptoms yet thankfully but both my mother and grandmother were affected with it later in their lives. I also have other family members who are at risk for the disease. Huntington's is a slow progressive disease that disables a person over the course of about 20 years.
Please consider making a donation to my personal fundraising page by clicking the ‘Support Me’ button at the top of this page.
The easiest and fastest way to donate is through this site. I have used it safely for several years now but if you would rather make a donation to me with a check make it out to HDSA and give or mail it to me at Tim Mulcahey, 407 SE 31st Ave, Portland, OR 97214 and I will forward it to HDSA.
Thank you so much for your support! Any amount large or small will help the research community find a cure and support the families affected with this disease.
With hugs and love,
Note: Please use firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate with me. My e-address timm at Spiritone is out of business so remove it from your address book. Your communications are important to me and I would not like to miss any of them
