Inspiring Young Leaders

Doug Mallock, the President of Young People Affected by Huntington Disease (YPAHD), attended his first YPAHD Day in 2012. He’d never been on a plane before and had never met any other family with HD. Attending that first YPAHD day, he says, “I was so nervous but I told myself to meet as many people as I could and sit at as many tables as I could. As soon as I started talking to people, I felt at home. And I left that day with lifelong friendships and a promise to do more with the Society.”

YPHAD continues to grow and flourish. YPAHD Day at last year’s national conference had the highest attendance to date – 72 youth, from teens to people in their mid 30s.

Right now, an anonymous donor has offered to match your donation. Your gift will help us grow the YPAHD program and support families like Doug’s across Canada. Donate today and double your impact.

“What I’m most proud of in our work is the mentorship program. Having someone to lean on and talk to—I never had that until my first YPHAD day—but today, when a young person reaches out, there is another young person to answer that call. I’m a mentor and it warms my heart to know how my partners are doing all across Canada.”
