There’s no question that Huntington’s disease is difficult for the individual diagnosed. But it also takes its toll on the family. That’s why it is important to donate to Huntington’s disease.
Because Huntington’s disease is diagnosed in young men and women – typically between the ages of 30 and 50 – it can place an enormous financial burden on a family. This often is just at the time when families are sending children to college. Without donations to Huntington’s disease, many children of parents with Huntington’s disease miss out on the opportunity to pursue their hopes and dreams.
You can help.
Through the Huntington’s disease donations of caring individuals, Huntington’s Hope raises scholarship money for children of parents with Huntington’s disease. The organization hopes to raise $1 million in 2013 with 100 percent of Huntington’s disease donations going directly into an endowment fund to create these scholarships.
To help, please DONATE NOW.
Good Samaritan Society – Specialty Care Community in Robbinsdale, Minn., owned and operated by the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, is one of only eight long-term skilled care centers in the United States with a dedicated program for individuals with Huntington’s disease. The Huntington’s disease donation program for scholarships through Huntington’s Hope was started here.
