I have lived through three generations of Huntington's Disease (HD).  The father of my children inherited HD from his mother.  She lost the battle to HD at the age of 46.  The father of my children also lost the battle to HD at the age of 42. 

As fate would have it, all three of my children inherited this devastating and fatal disease.  My youngest daughter, Marie, went to heaven at the age of 32.  Her brother and sister, Michael and Margie are severely debilitated by the disease but still battling this killer disease.  Their current state is simply a mere semblance of who they used to be, although their love for us and our love for them remains strong and intact. 

It is this love that gives my the courage to keep fight and to one day see how their "good fight" and their suffering was not in vain.  Only in finding a treatment or a cure can this be realized. 

Please join me, my beloved angels, and other HD families in fighting this devasting disease.   Join "Team Marie" and help us to make this THE LAST GENERATION OF HUNTINGTON'S DISEASE.  Thank you.
