John and Marco Funiciello have a close friend who has been afflicted by Huntington’s disease. They have seen this friend progress from someone with no outward signs of the disease to someone who has become wheelchair-bound and unable to care for herself. They welcome with open hearts any donations that you can make in order to care for all those who have Huntington’s Disease and to fund the necessary research to find a cure.

What is Huntington’s Disease?
Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities usually during their prime working years and has no cure. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the faulty gene that causes the disease. Today, there are approximately 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. The symptoms of Huntington’s disease are described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously.
