Catherine Price at (709) 832-7870 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Huntington disease is a fatal hereditary brain disorder with devastating effects on both the mind and body. It is like having Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Schizophrenia all at the same time. A child born to a parent with HD has a 50% chance of sharing the same fate. There is no cure.
