Huntington disease (HD) is an inherited brain disorder. HD causes cells in parts of the brain to die: specifically the caudate, the putamen and, as the disease progresses, the cerebral cortex. As the brain cells die, a person with Huntington’s becomes less able to control movements, recall events, make decisions and control emotions.
The symptoms are very dramatic and an emotional turmoil.
Cognitive loss (inability to focus, plan, recall or make decisions; impaired insight)
Physical deterioration (weight loss, involuntary movements, diminished coordination, difficulty walking, talking, swallowing.
All money collected will be used to make sure that Nicole has the best medically and professional care possible.
All updates on Nicole and her family will be provided on a regular basic.
I have enclosed a Website for anyone to read and obtain information on exactly what Huntington's Disease will do to a person.
Thank-you to anyone and everyone that has been touched by this story.
Thank-you to Nicole's family and friends that have helped in any way possible.
God bless each and everyone of you,
