November 6, 2019 Memo: Interim Leadership at the Huntington Society of Canada Dear Friends and Family of HSC: This note
Family is at the heart of our community. Our families and volunteers tell a powerful story of caring people who pull together to improve the quality of life for Canadians impacted by HD. Huntington disease (HD) is a fatal hereditary brain disorder with devastating effects on both the mind and body. It is like having the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS all in one disease.
The good news is, with recent medical breakthroughs many researchers and scientists believe that once we are successful in stopping the progression of HD we may also find the answers to many other neurological diseases. Your valued support will bring us one step closer to this goal.
At HSC, we are lucky to have a strong base of youth who are energized, creative and hopeful about finding treatments for HD and, eventually, a cure.
