The Toronto Chapter, formed in 1997, is part of the Huntington Society of Canada. Huntington disease (HD) is a fatal hereditary brain disorder with devastating effects on both the mind and body. It is like having the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS all in one disease.
The Huntington Society of Canada is a not-for-profit charitable organization which raises funds to deliver individual and group counselling service to support individuals and families living with Huntington disease (HD) and to fund medical research to delay or stop the progression of the disease. The Society also works with health and social services professionals to enable them to better serve people living with HD.
The Chapter is a group of volunteers in the Greater Toronto area that have been affected by HD. They dedicate their time and energy to help people affected by Huntington’s disease by raising awareness & fundraising for research & services.Family is at the heart of our community. Our families and volunteers tell a powerful story of caring people who pull together to improve the quality of life for Canadians impacted by HD.
Our mission is to do whatever possible to help people suffer less and supporting those searching for a cure!
