    Huntington's disease is a fatal, genetic brain disorder that destroys a person's mental and physical abilities. An estimated 30,000 Americans have it, and at least 150,000 more are at risk. Children of a parent with HD have a 50-50 chance of inheriting the condition, and the disease can start as early as childhood. Today there is no cure or treatment, but your support gives our families hope for a future free from HD.
