Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page! With your help, we can help HDSA achieve their mission to improve the lives of everyone with Huntington’s disease and their loved ones.
I hope by now you know that Huntington's Disease (HD) is my families, "dirty little secret"! My "Hope" is to not have it be a secret any longer! I am choosing to be an advocate not only for my family but all families that are dealing with HD.
I am walking this year in Sacramento's Team Hope walk on September 8th, 2017. This email is to ask you to either support me by donating or better yet invite you to come out and join me for the walk! My goal each year is to raise more then I did the year before and have more people out walking with me.
My goal is to raise $2000 and I have donated the first $100 so please take a moment and help me meet my goal. Every dollar larger or small makes a difference.

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.
