Online Silent Auction Supports Community & Social Support for Huntington’s Disease Families

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin, HD Advocate

The HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate is hosting an Online Silent Auction to help fund resources available to individuals or a family when they learn that their mother, father, grandmother, etc. has or had Huntington’s disease (HD), like my family did.  It’s life changing. 

The good news is that the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) has grown over the years and offers many resources to HD families.  Unfortunately, at this time, there is no cure or therapy for the rare, fatal, genetic brain disorder yet, but the resources available can greatly improve the quality of life to a person struggling with the disease.

To view all HDSA online resources, visit  HDSA Community & Social Support website.

      Hi Jamie,
      Thank you for sharing your HD story. I’m so sorry to hear your father’s family had HD and you are now experiencing symptoms. HD is the cruelest disease on the planet My husband’s mother had HD and his 3 sisters have died from HD complications. If you don’t know. the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America has many online free services for HD families. Don’t lose Hope because there are many promising clinical trials being conducted around the world.
      I wish you and your family the best.
