Dear Friends

Help Us Help Huntington’s Disease Patients and Their Families

The annual Hearts for Huntington’s Dinner Dance will be held on Saturday, February 7th, 2015 at the Hilton Chicago/Northbrook.  All proceeds support HDSA’s fight to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families.

Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain.  It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure.

HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene that causes the disease.  Today, there are 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease.

Symptoms include:

  • Personality changes, mood swings and depression
  • Forgetfulness and impaired judgment
  • Unsteady gait and involuntary movements (chorea)
  • Slurred speech and difficulty in swallowing

We are asking if you would be kind enough to make a donation to our silent auction, raffle or our unique Candy Bar Raffle.  For your donation, you would be recognized in our program and our quarterly newsletter.  If you would like more information or if you have further questions, contact me at 847-975-2403.

Thank you in advance for your help and support in finding a treatment and cure for this devastating disease.

Warm regards,
