Your gift to the Huntington Society of Canada in 2014 has had a big impact on families.
In the last 12 months, you have helped achieve so much. Thanks to your partnership in funding innovative research, clinical trials for ISIS-HTTRX (a drug which has the potential to reduce, partly reverse, and even prevent the symptoms of Huntington disease) are expected to begin in 2015!
Your support has also allowed us to expand our Family Services program. We are thrilled to be reaching more people than ever through these initiatives. Your generosity is changing the landscape of HD care across our country.
Your donation:
  • Maximizes the quality of life of people living with HD by funding our Resource Centre Directors to deliver services
  • Helps to further research to slow and prevent HD
  • Enables others to understand the disease
Thank you for the power of your gift.

” I just want to give you updates on the construction of the Clinic.
By Gods grace of we had finished the whole blocks setting of the main building.
The carpenters just started working on the roofing of the building this morning. I hope by the close of next week we will get the roofing done.
 
As soon as they finished the roofing we will work on the plastering of the walls and the floor.
Thank you for your prayers towards this work.
 
The foster children are all doing fine by his grace. The change of environment had done a lot in the life of these children and we are beginning to see changes in the life of these children.”
