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 have a special friend, Victoria, only 23 years old, who has been diagnosed with this awful disease after graduating from high school. She had dreams and goals.... She is a beautiful young woman...and before this disease, she was a ballerina! She loves life, she loves animals. And now, she is in a wheel chair.....struggling to move...to speak....to communicate. I ask you to please help her....and all who suffer with her. Your money will go toward research....and lead to the cure.

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.
