Raise funds to bring relief and hope to people and families afflicted with HD and other neurological diseases. It takes large sums of money to shepherd a new drug through the approval process. We need help to provide relief to people and families afflicted with these devastating diseases. We are registered as a non-profit corporation in South Dakota and have a pending non-profit application as a 501 c3 with the IRS.
The Shepherd's Gift: GM1 for HD mission is to promote ovine(sheep)GM1 for the treatment of Huntington's Disease(HD) and/or other neurological diseases through education, advocacy and fundraising. GM1 is a naturally occurring product which has shown great promise in animal models to reverse the devastating symptoms of HD. It has also been used in clinical trials for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Our non-profit organization is dedicated to shepherding ovine GM1 through the elaborate and expensive clinical trial process and give hope to people affected with these diseases.
