Peter DeVore (@peterdevore) — no saint except saint laurent
Tomorrow is the NYC Marathon & we are so grateful to so many people who helped the #kiselickkrusaders Team to raise $40,000, part of $111,000 total raised, for the Huntington’s Disease Society of America — funding research for a cure, and awareness for HD. 421+ miles trained....26.2 to go. 💪🏻🙏🏻🤞🏻💙 #hdsa#curehd#hdsafamily#nycmarathon2018#nycmarathontraining#huntingtonsdisease#huntingtonsdiseaseawareness
This November 4th, I’m running the #nycmarathon raising money for a cure for #huntingtonsdisease — a neurodengerative disease that is currently incurable. I am running for my Aunt, who’s suffering from HD, my Grandma who we lost to the disease, and my other family members currently at risk. To support me & help raise money in the fight for a cure, donate here — https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/huntingtons-disease-society-of-america-nyc-2018/peterdevore1?utm_campaign=oc&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=crowdrise & a big thank you in advance. Huntington's disease (HD), also known as Huntington's chorea, is an inherited disorder that results in death of brain cells. The earliest symptoms are often subtle problems with mood or mental abilities. A general lack of coordination and an unsteady gait often follow. As the disease advances, uncoordinated, jerky body movements become more apparent. Physical abilities gradually worsen until coordinated movement becomes difficult and the person is unable to talk. Mental abilities generally decline into dementia. The specific symptoms vary somewhat between people. Symptoms usually begin between 30 and 50 years of age, but can start at any age. The disease may develop earlier in life in each successive generation. If you did not know what Huntington's disease was... now you know.
