Helping Others, Volunteers

April is National Volunteer Month

April is National Volunteer Month, when we celebrate the work that volunteers do year-round. April 10-16 is National Volunteer Week; organizations across the country will recognize their volunteers for helping them achieve their mission.

The mission of Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) is, “Dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s Disease (HD) and their families“.

It takes many hands to continuously fulfill HDSA’s mission and as Chair for HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate, I’m honored to work by the side of many dedicated volunteers, in the San Francisco Bay Area, who work tirelessly in the fight against Huntington’s disease.

Huntington’s Disease, the cruelest disease on the planet, has NO CURE and affects families for generations.  Because it is genetic, when a child has a parent with the disease, they are “at risk” and have a 50/50 chance of inheriting the mutated huntingin gene that causes the disease. What is Huntington’s disease
