Mission Statement

HDSA is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease through community services, education, advocacy and research. As the Arizona Chapter, we are committed to supporting our HD community and continuing to fight for a cure. In the battle against Huntington's disease no one fights alone. At HDSA Arizona , family is everything.‚Äč

Description

Huntington’s disease (also called HD) is a fatal genetic brain disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities usually during their prime working years (30 to 50 years) and unfortunately there is no cure. HD is a family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the faulty gene.

Through seven HDSA regions with 50 volunteer-based chapters and affiliates, 200+ support groups, we reach out across the nation to offer HD patients and their family’s guidance, encouragement, resource information and leadership opportunities. There are HDSA events, meetings, and seminars, as well as HDSA advocacy programs -- truly a place to care, share while we all work toward a cure.
