The Society is a National, voluntary health organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with Huntington's Disease and their families. To promote and support research and medical efforts to eradicate Huntington's Disease. To assist people and families affected by Huntington's Disease to cope with the problems presented by the disease. To educate the public and health professionals about Huntington's disease.
We are a national non-profit voluntary health agency dedicated to finding a cure for Huntington's Disease. We provide vital support, information and educational services to improve the lives of those affected by HD, offer resources and guidance for HD families through our national network of volunteer-based chapters and affiliates as well as through our HDSA Centers of Excellence for Family Services and promote and support research to find a cure for HD.
Every person who inherits the HD gene will eventually develop the disease.
Each child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the gene.
HD affects both sexes and all races and ethnic groups around the world.
HD doesn't skip generations. If you don't inherit the gene, you cannot pass it on.
