About HD

HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE (HD) is a hereditary, degenerative neurological disorder that has been called the most devastating disease known to man. After adult onset, 15-20 years of slow, painful mental and physical deterioration occur. For children who have the juvenile form of Huntington’s, the decline is severely accelerated.

Each child of an affected parent has a 50/50 risk of inheriting the genetic mutation that causes Huntington’s Disease.
