Thank you for visiting our Team fundraising page! With your help, we can help to improve the lives of everyone with Huntington’s disease and their loved ones.
Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. Imagine having Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Bipolar Disorder all at the same time - that's what it's like to have Huntington's Disease. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and there is no cure - yet.
That's where you come in! I need your help! YOUR help provides a better quality of life for not only my father but for me.
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.
From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today and hope for tomorrow for people with HD and their families.
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by HD.
Across the United States, HDSA currently supports:
•54 volunteer led Chapters & Affiliates
•41 Centers of Excellence
•65 Social Workers
•160 Support Groups
