The September 24 issue of the Minneapolis Star Tribune carried an article about Jake Dowell of the Minnesota Wild hockey team. It’s worth reading. Dowell’s father and brother have been diagnosed with Huntington’s disease and are in the final stages of their illness. To hear Dowell’s first-hand account is to understand a little better the devastation Huntington’s disease can bring to an entire family.
For families with younger children, there’s another hidden cost. The expense of caring for someone with Huntington’s disease can be staggering, often making post-secondary education unaffordable. Huntington’s Hope was created to raise money for a scholarship fund to help these families.
