I am new to the Delaware Chapter Board of Directors for HDSA. I feel that HDSA had moved in great strides in helping to educate and care for those suffering and the families of those suffering with Huntington's Disease. We have lost several cousins to this disease and it is a heart breaking demise for humans to struggle with. Please consider HDSA for your top great non-profit causes.
