The Shepherd's Gift: GM1 for HD
Team Member: Traci Pratt
I became a TEAM MEMBER so that I CAN HELP! My son is in DESPERATE need of treatment and a cure for JHD. He has declined dramatically this past year....So I found "The Shepard's Gift: GM1 for HD" Facebook page and I read all of their info....they have found a possible treatment AND it shows REVERSAL in HD in Ovine testing!!! So I decided to join in their effort to push for HUMAN TRIALS! But we need to produce MORE OVINE with this GM1!! So this is how I am helping. Funds do NOT go to Byron or our family!! It goes to THE SHEPARDS GIFT (A *non-profit 501c3 status is pending with the IRS.)

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.
