Huntington's Disease (HD)

Is an autosomal dominant genetic mutation in either copy of an individual's Huntingtin gene

which results in a neuro-degenerative disorder that causes nerve cells in certain parts of the

brain to waste away.  It affects muscle coordination and leads to cognitive decline and psychiatric problems. It typically becomes noticeable in mid-adult life, although there is a juvenile form. 

HD has been described as: MS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s Diseases all rolled into one.

It has been called the cruelest disease known to man. 

There is currently no treatment or cure.

 

HD families need HOPE. 

We believe there is HOPE in GM1 Research.

 

What is GM1? 

Ovine (sheep) GM1 is a natural molecule that has shown great promise in

treating and even reversing Huntington's symptoms in mouse models.

This research also gives hope for neurological diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

 

Here are a few of our stories.... 

Update in 2022: Both Kate and Todd are now in nursing homes needing care to live with HD.  Robin lost her battle with HD.
