Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  My goal is too raise $1000 for the North Carolina Chapter. My Team is Cleda Thouvenot in honor of my grandmother who died of Huntington's Disease. This cause is near and dear to my heart since I have lost so many relatives to this Disease. We need to work together to find a cure because I want kids to know to their parents and or grandparents. That is why I need your help, to achieve the North Carolina's Chapter goal of $14,000. With reaching the Chapters goal you have help to improve the lives of everyone with Huntington’s disease and their loved ones in North Carolina.

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.
