#LightItUp4HD

Lightitupcover

Together we raised the visibility of Juvenile HD and HD.

Thanks to local and national volunteers our LightItUp4HD campaign is gained lots of attention. With the encouragement from volunteers across Canada (and even the globe!) we are expanded #LightItUp4HD. We lit up the world in purple and blue, for Juvenile Huntington disease (JHD) and Huntington disease (HD), throughout the month of May 2018!
