THE STORY:

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.
