Celebrating 50 years of the Guthrie Family Legacy in the fight against Huntington’s disease.
All proceeds benefit the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease. From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today, hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their families.
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America was founded fifty years ago by Marjorie Guthrie, the wife of legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie. Woody died from HD complications when he was only 55 years old, but the Guthrie family legacy lives on at HDSA to this day.
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 HD. The symptoms of HD are described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases – simultaneously.
