John and I have been connected to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA), a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of anyone affected by Huntington’s disease (HD) for many years.
It began long ago, 1978, when John’s family secret was discovered; his mom had HD. I’ve received newsletters and info from them for over 20 years and we have donated to the organization regularly as did John’s father. http://www.hdsa.org
So, I’m shouting out about the HDSA Northern California Chapter’s fundraiser on Sept. 8th, the Sacramento Team HOPE Walk. John and I have created “The Marin Team” and want to raise $1,000.00. Here’s the link to register for the Walk or to make a donation to the event. Any dollar amount is helpful in the fight against HD. (HD is a fatal, genetic brain disorder that affects children & adults & there is no cure. It’s like having ALS, Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s at the same time.) http://www.hdsa.org/THWSacramento
