Fifteen years ago former minister and director of Resort Area Ministry (RAM's Rack, etc.) of Boone was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease (HD). Huntington's Disease is an inherited disease that slowly diminishes the patient's ability to walk, think and reason. Tom's father and brother have both succumbed to this debilitating condition. In hopes of finding a cure, Tom wants people to know about Huntington's Disease and join him and his family Saturday, April 11, at the Boone Greenway Trail, as we increase awareness and raise money for research in hopes of finding an effective treatment and possible cure.
To date there are approximately 30,000 known HD cases in the United States with 250,000 Americans at risk of inheriting the disease from a parent.
Although medical research has provided HD patients with promising treatments related to their symptoms, there is yet a cure for Huntington's Disease., but with your support, together, we can make a difference.
