I am helping my friend's son, Trae Carroll organize this event in her honor. Tammy lost her battle with Huntington's disease in 2010, at the age of 38. She inherited HD from her father, who passed away when we were in Elementary School. HD has also claimed the lives of several of Tammy's siblings, aunts, uncles, etc. Each child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of inheriting the mutation of the gene, and developing Huntington's disease. Tammy had two children, Trae and Chryslyn. Trae is a 17 year old Jr. at Edgewood High School in Ellettsville. He has recently gotten very involved in raising awareness of this devastating disease and hopes to pursue a career in which he can be among the Scientist that help find the cure for Huntington's disease, and other diseases. Currently there is NO cure for Huntington's disease.
Please help us make this event a huge success, and raise lots of money to find a cure for this disease!
Any level of donation would be greatly appreciated. We are also having a silent auction/raffle at this event...if you are able to donate/sponsor, please let me know.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration! For more information about Huntington's Disease, please visit www.hdsa.org or www.hdsa.org/in.
