9th Annual Team Hope Walk for the Cure - Orange County
Please join "Team Marie" and help us support research currently taking place for the treatment of Huntington's Disease. I have lived to see three generations in my family succumb to Huntington's....my late mother-in-law, the father of my children and his two brothers, and a year ago, my beloved daughter, MARIE. My remaining children, Michael and Margie, are fighting for their lives each and every waking day. I pray that we will have a treatment or a cure before the next generation starts living with the fear of inheriting this fatal disease. I want to see my grandchildren live a full and happy life. I will continue to support research and explored treatments, traditional and non-traditional approaches that would integrate attention to personal care, as well as curative treatment in an effort to halt the progression of the disease and to improve overall quality of life for HD families.I will be walking in memory of my little angel, Marie, and for my two children, Michael and Margie. Please join me and all our HD community in the most noble fight against a disease that ravages the lives of thousands of individuals every year. Help us to eradicate HD! Join me and "Team Marie" for a Walk in the Park on September 24, 2011. THANK YOU!
