This May 18, you are invited to a moment of history.

JOIN US AS POPE FRANCIS WELCOMES THE LARGEST GLOBAL GATHERING OF THE HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE COMMUNITY

0Days0Hours0Mins0Secs

Meet the families from South America, who, this May will have an audience with the Pope in Vatican City. This single event will shine the largest light on Huntington’s disease in history. The journey begins here.

It started out like any other day for these families across South America. Then the red envelopes came, starting an unforgettable journey.

Huntington’s Disease (HD) is an incurable genetic brain disorder affecting nearly one million people globally. It is among the most common hereditary brain disorders, yet few people know about it and no cure exists.

It begins with personality changes and progresses to loss of body function, eventually robbing the person of the ability to talk, walk, swallow, think and reason.

Action is needed now to reverse the stigma and to improve the lives of people affected by HD.

Join us on May 18th or help spread the word to ensure that HD is Hidden No More!
