Finding the cure for Huntington’s Disease

ABOUT

My name is Morgan McLane and I created “Barbara Lee’s Fast Track to a Cure for Huntington’s Disease” in honor of my Aunt Barbara. She was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease (HD) in December, 1999. Barbara led quite a normal life, getting married and having two daughters. In her 40’s her life changed forever, beginning with subtle changes in her personality and physical capabilities.  We now realize this was the beginning of her disease.  HD is an inherited, degenerative brain disorder that results in the progressive loss of control of both the mind and the body. Approximately 30,000 people in the US are living with HD, with another 200,000+ assumed at risk.  Each child of an affected parent has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease.  In 2005, Aunt Barbara was placed in a nursing home, confined to a wheelchair, and began having difficulty speaking and swallowing.  HD is an especially difficult condition because it robs the affected person not only of their health and independence, but also the memories of family, friends, and a lifetime of experiences.

 There is no cure.

In April of 2010 my aunt lost her battle with HD…

As we enter our twelfth year of FastTrackPGH, we hope you join us in raising funds and awareness of Huntington’s Disease.  Your support will put Huntington’s Disease on a “FastTrack” to the finish line of finding a cure!
