Hope, Dignity and Awareness for those with Huntington's

$

Huntington's Disease is a hereditary neurological condition that leads to progressively deteriorating muscle co-ordination and cognitive ability, drastically impacting the quality of life of those who are symptomatic. However, the impact of this disease affects not just the individual themselves, but also their carers, families and the communities they live in. There is still no cure for Huntington's Disease.

Huntington's Western Australia aims to help provide those affected with the best possible quality of life through advocacy, support and education. We are currently helping approximately 150 families and communities affected by Huntington's Disease.

How will the funds be used?

All funds will go towards supporting HWA in running our services.
