Huntington’s disease (HD gene found in 1993) is an
inherited and ultimately fatal brain disorder that affects
control of movement, thought and behavior. Every child
of an individual with HD has a 50/50 chance of
inheriting the mutated gene that causes HD. More than
30,000 Americans have been diagnosed with HD and
more than 250,000 others are at risk.
*Recent 2013 updated statistics specify that 1 out of
every 7,000 people has HD.*
