Huntington’s Disease (HD) is a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder. It causes the loss of cognitive, behavioral and physical control, and presently, there is no treatment or cure. HD slowly diminishes an individual’s ability to walk, think, talk and reason. Symptoms usually appear in an individual between 30 and 50 years of age and progress over a 10 to 25 year period.
Eventually, every person with HD becomes totally dependent upon others for his or her care.
This May, the Huntington’s Disease Society of America needs your help to raise awareness of HD, and to help educate our community and provide support and services to families affected by HD.
