HDSA is a nonprofit organization that takes a grass roots approach to spreading awareness and raising money to deal with different issues that affect the families who affected by this debilitating disease. From the establishment of unique medical facilities that help individuals to understand and address the unique psychological and physical conditions created by the disease to fighting on Capital Hill to have bills passed to get people affect by HD the proper health care at the right time, HDSA and its members are at the forefront of trying to help provide the "hope" and "help" need in the the HD community. I am proud to be a part of it!

I love that they have outreach for young people affected by the condition. I found several other people that were also taking care of their dying parents all while facing the possibility of their own diagnosis. It helped me not to feel so alone, which is invaluable.

The HDSA has changed my life in so many ways. I have been introduced to other great HD organizations through them. I have new found family because of the HD community and all that the HDSA has done for us over the years and I have gained SO much knowledge. Without the HDSA, I would never have found all the love and support I needed to get through the hardships of this disease.

HDSA has changed my life for the better. This organization has not only provided me with resources and education, but also a FAMILY. In this organization, family truly is everything. I am ever grateful for HDSA and their support of youth across the U.S. through their National Youth Alliance.

At a time in my life, when all seemed hopeless in getting the necessary help for my loved one who is suffering from HD, HDSA was there.
I was at the end of rope, I called HDSA, and started crying on the phone trying to get answers on what to do, where do go from here, and all my questions were not only answered, I was comforted by a wonderful woman. She was reassuring that I wouldn't have to do this alone, HDSA would guide and help me with all our needs.
They were more than just words, HDSA provided me with all the resources I needed.
Without their help, I don't know where my family would be now.
My heartfelt thanks are with all the wonderful people at HDSA. During the hardest time of my life, HDSA helped ease my burden and was there for me.
I am forever grateful to all the wonderful, compassionate, and helpful people that are the HDSA! Thank you for all you do for people with HD and their families!

HDSA is a major platform for individuals who are at risk, have HD or have loved One's who suffer from the disease. I am thankful for HDSA and the awareness this organization raises for the disease, as well as the resources it provides for individuals/families affected by the disease.
