The HDSA has helped raise awareness and funds to help those people affected by Huntington's Disease. It has provided both emotional and financial support for those suffering with this terrible disease. With more awareness of HD, I believe that HDSA can get us closer to a cure to end this terrible disease.

I got involved with this group through my wife. Her father passed away some years ago from HD. Her sister is in an assisted living home with HD. I became involved through doing some research about HD. I asked Jane Kogan for some assistance. I have become a very strong advocate in the state of Texas for putting HD in equal treatment with other more notable diseases. I am also in the process of forming a family support group here in central Texas. This is a great group of people to be associated.
