My goal is to raise $2,000 with your help. This 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 has a 50/50 change of inheriting the gene. I have personally watched Marie and Margie slowly decline over several years and become completely incompacitated and eventually die.
I pray that the cure will be found soon so that no more families will needlessly suffer from this disease.
