The HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate wanted to hold an event that could calm folks during this pandemic, which we have never experienced before.  COVID-19 creates stress in our lives;  families are out of work or working at home and trying to teach their kids.  Communicating with loved ones and friends is virtual now and hugs are out of the question.

Caring for a loved on with Huntington’s disease (HD) is stressful enough, and very isolating, and COVID-19, compounds the worry.  HD is a rare, fatal, genetic brain order that has all the symptoms of ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimers at the same time and there is NO CURE.  What is HD?

I’m the Chair for the HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate and we are hosting a new virtual event to help with the stress, at least for a little while.
