“Every year I get excited for the SF Bay Area Chapter Team Hope Walks. It’s an opportunity for HD families to come together as a community to find support and draw strength from each other while supporting HDSA in the battle against Huntington’s Disease.” – Therese Crutcher-Marin, Event Chair & Chapter President.
Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and is often described as having ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease all at once. Today, there are approximately 41,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at risk of inheriting the disease.
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a brain disease that is passed down in families from generation to generation. HD has the symptoms of ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s at one time and it strikes young. And there is NO CURE.

HD is a rare, fatal, genetic brain disorder that has the symptoms of ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimers at the same time. There is NO CURE and as far as I’m concerned, it’s the cruelest disease on the planet.
