Huntington Society of Canada

The Huntington Society of Canada is a not-for-profit charitable organization which raises funds to deliver individual and group counselling services to support individuals and families living with Huntington disease and to fund medical research to delay or stop the progression of the disease. The Society also works with health and social services professionals to enable them to better serve people living with HD.

Huntington Disease (HD) is a fatal hereditary brain disorder with devastating effects on both the mind and body. It is like having Alzheimer's Parkinson's and Schizophrenia all at the same time. A child born to a parent with HD has a 50% chance of sharing the same fate. 1 in every 1,000 Canadians is impacted by HD. Currently there is no cure for Huntington disease.
