Huntington’s is a rarer disease than cancer or diabetes and even rarer than other, similar neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, but the impact it has on individuals, their families, relatives and the wider community can often be far greater. HD is genetic, and thus often spreads through a family, across generations, with profound impacts. Further complexities of multiple symptoms overlaying each other, ever changing as the disease progresses, means that families, communities and our Association regularly have to deal with difficult issues arising from these impacts, such as homelessness, violence, domestic and childcare/protection matters, children caring for parents, suicide, mental health issues, court and correctional service matters, incarceration, drugs, and alcohol addictions. There is no cure for HD or its impacts. People just have to do the best they can.
So, whilst rare, HD is incredibly impactful. And Huntington’s SA & NT does not receive government funds to run our everyday business. So, every bit of support goes straight to alleviating and supporting people with often profound problems.
Put your best foot forward and dance alongside those with Huntington’s disease and ensure that our efforts to raise awareness and provide supports, services and education can be ongoing.
A Corporate Partnership allows your company to let its social conscience shine and show that minorities do matter.
Your brand is as important to us as it is to you. By working together we can make a difference to the lives of those with and impacted by HD.
