The John Paul Jr. Huntington's Disease Foundation, Inc.
About Our Foundation
Formed in 2013 to support John Paul Jr.'s pursuit to promote awareness, raise research dollars and to help with the advancement of finding a cure for Huntington's Disease (HD). Although he was not able to live to see the cure, all of his efforts will help the future of his children and countless others facing horrific neurodegenerative diseases. We raise awareness and research dollars by promotion and events. All proceeds after expenses go directly to Dr. Susan Perlman's Research Fund at UCLA.
We exist to honor and continue the legacy of John Paul Jr. by raising awareness and much needed research dollars towards the cure of Huntington's Disease. Developing better treatments and finding a cure for HD will be vital for improving treatments and curing this cruel neurological disease along with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
What is Huntington's Disease
Huntington's disease is a horrific, hereditary, neurological disease. The symptoms of HD are sometimes described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously.
