HelpCureHD Luncheon 2018

HelpCureHD Luncheon hosted by Joe Smith and Allie LaForce to raise funds and awarness for Huntington’s Disease

A powerful group joined together in Houston, Texas to learn how the Smith family has been personally affected by Huntington’s Disease and how they plan to fight against the disease. Funds raised at this event will go towards IVF treatment for families affected by Huntington’s Disease who want to prevent passing along the gene to future generations.

Athletes+Causes Cleveland 2017 was a wonderful celebration of the charitable work of Carlos Carrasco, Joe Smith and Allie LaForce.

Funds raised benefited the Carlos Carrasco Foundation‘s support of early childhood education, and Joe and Allie’s Help Cure HD Foundation which helps families affected by Huntington’s Disease easier by contributing financial, emotional, and mental support while trying to find a cure. The event’s proceeds also supported OhioGuidestone, which provides pathways for growth, achievement and lifelong success to help children, families and communities become stronger; and Cleveland Clinic‘s Huntington’s Disease research.

Houston — Smith and LaForce plan to incorporate IVF treatments into their family planning. That way, they can select embryos that don’t have the Huntington’s disease gene.
But, as LaForce explained, each round costs around $25,000. “Fortunately, we’re able to afford that. There are so many families that can’t.”

Living with Huntington’s Disease:Cleveland Clinic Guide

Cleveland_Clinic_Host: Huntington’s Disease (HD) is a disease that affects the brain and causes unsteady and uncontrollable movements in the hands, feet, and face, as well as mental illness. People who have HD develop abnormal movements that eventually affect activities such as walking, talking, and swallowing. HD is an inherited disease; a parent passes it to his or her child. It is also a progressive disease, meaning it gets worse over time, and movement and everyday activities become increasingly harder. Depending on the patient’s age, he or she may suffer with HD for up to 30 years.

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a genetic disease (inherited from a parent) that affects the brain and causes unsteady and uncontrollable movements in the hands, feet, and face. These abnormal movements eventually affect such activities as walking, talking, and swallowing. Psychiatric and behavioral problems are also very common and may often be harder to manage than the involuntary movements themselves.
