BENEFITING: THE OC MARATHON FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
My goal is to raise $7,000 with your help. Huntington's disease is horrific and devastates so many families. My friend, Frances Saldana, has lost her 2 daughters, Marie and Margie, to this disease and her son, Michael, will be next. I know many people whose children have died or are "at risk" of having the gene. Those children born from an HD parent have a 50/50 change of inheriting the gene. I personally watched Marie and Margie slowly decline over several years and become completely incompacitated and eventually die.
Clinical trials started last year so the HD community is hopeful for a treatment soon. Thanks to giving people like you, a cure/treatment will be found soon and no more families will needlessly suffer from this disease.
