The Shepherd's Gift:
GM1 for HD
We are a grassroots, not for profit organization,
dedicated to raising funds to bring
to people and families afflicted with HD and other neurologic diseases.
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
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
and even reversing Huntington's symptoms in mouse models.
This research also gives hope for neurological diseases
such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
