HDSA offers families a place where they can find the most up to date information on HD. Often they are the first place a person with HD calls when they learn that HD is in their family. HDSA advocates for the HD community every day.

There is so much incredibly valuable information on the HDSA.org website and on HDSA's social media pages. The HDSA YouTube Channel has everything families need from research news and caregiver tips. HDSA also coordinates excellent community events and support groups from coast to coast.

This nonprofit needs support. This disease is unknown to most and deserves our attention. These families have generations of unfortunate and almost unimaginable discrimination. It is one of the worst mental and physical disabilities known to man. These families are struggling and need our financial help. Because the families are so mentally affected they are unable to ask for help. PLEASE consider this charity for donations. Google it for more info.

Huntington's Disease is by far the cruelest disease to date. Having said this, having the support of the HDSA is crucial for families on so many levels. THis agency has helped with setting up Doctors appointments, it aids in funding Research , offers support groups in states and cities around the country and gives families HOPE which is all we have right now. HOPE for a future with no Huntington's and a chance for those children at risk to breathe and look forward to their future. I have lost my husband to HD and my 21 year son is symptomatic. Without HDSA I would be lost. Definately the #1 Non Profit around.
