Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page! I am walking in honor of my of my husband who is now in the Veterans Home with the late portion of mid-stage HD and his mother who is already deceased from this horrible disease. This disease ruined our life financially, socially and mentally. It caused me to have multiple mental breakdowns to see his deterioration and the devastation it caused to us financially. With this horrible disease a person deteriorates mentally to the point of almost a child, becomes unable to walk or eat or control bodily functions as well as speak. I call this “Satan’s” disease and NOBODY should have to endure this. I believe that they WILL find a cure for this devastating disease, but it will take a lot of research and of course funding. They have made great strides already, thanks to the generosity of people like you.
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.
