Growing up in a Huntington’s disease family can be extremely difficult and each child of a parent with HD has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease. To date there is no known cure or proven treatment. This year we are focussing our fundraising efforts on the establishment of a youth services program to help break down the sense of isolation that many young people experience.
