Bluebird Care Trafford Supports Huntington's Disease Awareness Week 2016
It's Huntington's Disease Awareness Week 2016 and we're delighted to be involved.
This week is Huntington's Disease Awareness Week 2016 and we're delighted to promote this annual campaign which runs from 11-17 May. Huntington's Disease, often referred to as HD, is a hereditary disorder of the central nervous system and affects 12 in every 100,000 people in the UK.
The Huntington’s Disease Association England & Wales (HDA) exists to provide support and information to professionals and people directly affected by Huntington’s disease.
Huntington’s disease is an incurable, degenerative disease of the central nervous system that affects more than 6,000 people across the UK. In 97% of cases this disorder is caused by a hereditary gene.
"We're proud to promote the campaign as this is one of the neurological conditions our team bring their expertise to", says Ian Helsby of Bluebird Care Trafford. "It's vital professionals know about the disease and that those suffering from Huntington's find out about the help and support available to them."
