On July 3rd, 2020, ABC News’ Linsey Davis follows two families grappling with the rare genetic disorder Huntington’s disease (HD), compared to ALS, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease all in one. (if video didn’t transfer, click here to watch the video: https://youtu.be/USwMplVl5vQ)
I was ecstatic when I saw the video on ABC. I don’t know how this came about but I bet the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) had something to do with it!
Thank you ABC News.
The more awareness created about HD, especially by news organization like ABC, the more people will know about this horrific genetic disease with NO CURE. What-is-Huntington’s Disease?
HDSA and many other nonprofits are being challenged due to COVID-19. Most of HDSA fundraising events were changed to VIRTUAL and with so much uncertainty in our lives, donations are down. To make a donation to HDSA and help in the fight against Huntington’s disease, click here HDSA-Make a Donation
