About Huntington disease
What is Huntington disease?
Huntington disease (HD) is an inherited brain disorder. Each child of a parent with HD has a 50 per cent chance of inheriting the disease. HD causes cells in parts of the brain to die. As the brain cells die, a person with HD becomes less able to control movements, recall events, make decisions and control emotions. Learn more here.
Family is at the heart of our community
The Huntington Society of Canada (HSC) is a not-for-profit charitable organization which raises funds to deliver counselling and other support services to individuals and families living with Huntington disease (HD). HSC works with health and social services professionals to enable them to better serve people living with HD. We also fund medical research leading to treatments that will delay or stop the progression of the disease.
