New Mexico Affiliate
Welcome to the Land of Enchantment!
Welcome to the homepage of the Huntington's Disease Society of America, New Mexico Affiliate. We are a part of the South Central Region. In the Land of Enchantment we are moving forward to spread awareness and support for families living with Huntington's Disease.
Huntington's Disease is an inherited genetic mutation that robs a person of their ability to walk, talk, think and live independently from others help. Approximately 6,000 New Mexican's are affected by this devastating disease. Through help from HDSA and ongoing support from our volunteers we have been able to reach more families each month than ever before. As an affiliate we are able to bring more resources and education to New Mexico communities, hold fund raising events to support HDSA's mission, and spread awareness statewide. Come be a part of our new affiliate!
HELP FOR TODAY. HOPE FOR TOMORROW
The Society is a National, voluntary health organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with Huntington's Disease and their families.

Our Support Group has a long standing history in the HD community. It was first founded in 1988, by caregivers of people with Huntington's. Since 1988, we have grown throughout the Albuquerque community and have been able to reach families in Taos, Las Cruces, Raton, Truth or Consequences, Rio Rancho and Moriarty. We encourage families from all over the state to be a part of our support group. Resources are available for those who are at-risk, positive or negative, and for caregivers.
