This year Meghan and I are walking in Jacksonville, we are getting a late start in asking for donations.  Please help us raise  money to fight for a cure for HD......

 

HELP US RAISE FUNDS to find a cure or slow down the progression of this devastating disease called Huntington's Disease (HD).  WE WANT A CURE!!   

 HD does not just affect one person in a family; each offspring has a 50/50 percent chance of inheriting this mutant gene and eventually start showing signs of HD.  In HD, the nerve cells in part of the brain start dying, and causing the persons life to be cut short.  HD is a progressive degeneration of physical, cognitive and emotional abilities that ends up with an individual unable to walk, talk or think. Most families have multiple individuals that are facing HD.  HD profoundly affects the lives of entire families -- emotionally, socially and economically.  . If you don't have it then you will become a caregiver. Care giving is not an easy task to do either, watching your parent, partner, child or any other relative start to show symptoms of HD. 

    Please join Team Hope in a walk to raise money to find a cure, and bring community awareness for Huntington's Disease.  Families and friends of the   Florida Support Group will gather at Ed Austin Regional Park in Jacksonville, FL.  Registration starts at 8:00 am; walk begins at 9:00 am till 11am on Saturday, September 19, 2009. Walk around beautiful park.  Walk distance is completely up to you.

Refreshments will be provided.   Don't forget to buy some raffle tickets for all the nice items we will have!
