Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page!
I need your help to reach my $ 500 goal. This is a modest goal but the total will be matched by my employer and every dollar helps.I would not be against crushing the goal #. Give what you can or come out to support my cause and join me at the event. There are great raffle items to win and amazing trip deals to the Caribbean in our silent auction and the Lakers girls will be there to cheer on the walkers.
Please consider making a donation to my personal fundraising page by clicking the ‘Donate’ button at the top of this page. *** All donations you make will be matched by my employer. That means if you give $ 25 HDSA will end up getting $ 50.
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America is the premier not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. 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.
Across the United States, HDSA currently supports: • 54 volunteer led Chapters & Affiliates • 41 Centers of Excellence • 65 Social Workers • 160 Support Groups
