Here is a little information on Huntington's disease for some who are unfamiliar:
It is a brain disorder that affects a persons ability to think, talk, and move. It has been described as a cross between Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It has a 50% chance of being passed from parent to child and 1 in 30,000 Americans have it. Huntington's disease destroys cells in the brain that control movement, emotion, and cognitive ability. Some symptoms include poor memory, depression and/or mood swings, lack of coordination, twitching, uncontrolled movements, difficulty walking, speaking and swallowing. It is terminal and there is no cure.
As a family that has been doing battle with this disease for what seems like forever, please consider a donation of support towards finding a cure!
It is our goal to see a cure in our lifetime.
Thanks again for your support!
