My brother Justin was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease in 2007. He was in a facility for over 2 years and sadly passed away in March of this year at the age of 41. My mother passed away from this disease at the age of 47.  I will do everything in my power to raise awareness and help find a cure for this horrible disease.

This picture was taken the day before he passed away. We went to the Farm Table with his daughter Sparrow for lunch. This was our favorite restaurant.  I miss him so much.

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.
