It's that time of the year again and I am visiting you in hopes that you will sponsor me in the walk for a cure for Huntington's Disease coming up on September 29th.
There has been some exciting news recently about research that has turned up a medicine that is successful in reversing the devastating effects of this disease. It has been proven in mouse and primate tests and in time will be brought to human subjects.
Follow this link to learn more about this very positive research.
I am particulary excited with this news, being a gene positive person myself with the onset of this disease looming in my future. This news brings hope that I may have a chance at avoiding the disabling effects that my Mother and Grandmother suffered at the end of their lives.
Your support today will continue this kind of research towards a cure.
