Lets get ready to RUN!
My name is Vanessa Marin, and I'm so excited to be part of this team. Huntington's disease has dramatically affected me and my family's life. I'm looking forward to the day that science finds a solution (There is no doubt in my mind that its close), so please donate to my page to help support research for Huntington's disease!
I lost my 3 aunts to Huntington's disease during different stages of my life. My first aunt I never knew, Aunt Lora, who died from alcohol abuse tied to depression and the disease. My second aunt I was able to see regress from an independant and successful woman to a heavily dependant and incapacitated victim of this disease that eventually took her life. This was my Aunt Marcia. My last aunt I knew for about the first 14 years of my life as an amazing adventurous woman. My Aunt Cindy loved to travel, and we shared to same passion for the outdoors where she would take me whenever she came to visit. Once Huntington's set into her life, she fought it as much as she could, went on a 5 month adventure to Africa, then eventually subsided to the same state as my other aunts.
I loved these women and my father who won the genetics lottery and does not have Huntingtons, please support this cause to eliminate Huntingtons disease!
Please donate today :)
