Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to Introduce the Huntington's Disease Parity Act
Act Now to Secure Original Cosponsors
On Friday, March 11, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D, NY) sent a Dear Colleague Letter urging her colleagues in the Senate to become original cosponsors of the Huntington's Disease Parity Act of 2011.
Take Action Now! We have until Wednesday, March 16, to secure original cosponsors!
The Huntington's Disease Parity Act is important for all people affected by Huntington's disease (HD). If enacted into law, your Senators can make it easier for individuals with HD to receive Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare coverage, dramatically improving the lives of all people affected by Huntington's disease.
Now is the time to act! Contact your Senators and urge them to sign on as original cosponsors of the Huntington's Disease Parity Act!
Emailing your Senators takes just a minute, but will lead to life-long improvements in the way HD is treated in this country. Just go to We also encourage you to add your personal story about HD and how it has affected your family.
Thank you in advance for your support of this effort. Please forward this news to everyone you know who cares about HD, because we want to generate as many emails as possible.
