Who We Are

In June 2016, we bacame the Albany Chapter.

We support anyone affected by HD (patient, caregiver, family, friends, etc.) from the Adirondacks to Westchester County and Utica to Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont. The majority of our events are in the greater Capital District but we are always exploring new ideas in other areas.
