Our mission is to serve as a resource to the Huntington’s Disease Community.
To do so, we will provide services, to not only those diagnosed with and those at risk of developing Huntington’s Disease, but to their families and the communities that serve them.
TCHF is a non-profit 501(3)C corporation founded in 2005.
Huntington's disease is an incurable, hereditary brain disorder. It is a devastating disease for which there is no currently "effective" treatment.
Nerve cells become damaged, causing various parts of the brain to deteriorate. The disease affects movement, behavior and cognition - the affected individuals' abilities to walk, think, reason and talk are gradually eroded to such a point that they eventually become entirely reliant on other people for their care.
Huntington's disease has a major emotional, mental, social and economic impact on the lives of patients, as well as their families.
Huntington's is a hereditary disease. Children of an HD gene positive parent have a 50/50 chance of having HD.
