What is Huntington’s Disease? Who is HDSA? Huntington’s disease (HD) is a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder that results in a loss of cognitive, behavioral and physical control, and for which, presently, there is no cure, and only one FDA approved treatment for a symptom of HD.

HD slowly diminishes the affected individual’s ability to walk, talk, think and reason. Symptoms usually appear in an individual between 30 and 50 years of age and progress over a 10-25 year period. Cases of juvenile Huntington’s disease (JHD) have been diagnosed in children as young as two years of age. Eventually a person with HD becomes totally dependent upon others for his or her care. More than 30,000 people in the US are currently diagnosed with Huntington’s disease. Each child of a parent with HD has a 50% risk of inheriting the gene, and developing the disease. Therefore, another 250,000+ people are at risk.

Our Family’s Story My mother grew up knowing about Huntington's Disease but never thinking that she could have it. Her Grandfather had it, but her mother was told that if she reached 50 without showing symptoms then she wouldn't get it. Well in 2005 my grandmother (My mom’s mom) tested positive for the HD gene. Of course this brought a lot of questions for her 5 children, would they get Huntington's? Two of them decided to be tested, my mother and my Aunt, they both tested positive for the gene, but have not been diagnosed with Huntington's at this time. Our family: Amanda, James, Mary & Dave Rinkel

In 2006 my brother & I both also tested positive for the gene. Over the past couple of years we have become increasingly aware of the need to help with fundraisers, to provide money for research and hopefully to find a cure for this horrible disease. We continue to organize the Hotcakes for Huntington’s and Old Mill Festival every year as our families way to help raise some money, and awareness! We would LOVE for you to join us this year, and help us make this our best, most fun and successful year yet! If you can not join us, but can help our fundraising efforts, you may make an secure, online donation at fundraisers
