Huntington’s Disease Society to Meet at Kane Glen Hazel

The Huntington’s Disease Society of Pittsburgh will meet at Kane Glen Hazel on Monday February 6th at 1:30.  The meeting will be a general information session intended to provide support, information and educational services to improve the lives of those affected by HD.

Huntington’s Disease is a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder for which there is, at present, no cure and only one approved treatment.  HD slowly diminishes the affected individual’s ability to walk, talk and reason.  Huntington’s Disease profoundly affects the lives of entire families – emotionally, socially and economically.

“The residents and families of those suffering from Huntington’s Disease asked for this educational and supportive meeting and we are proud to host it” said Judy Fockler Social Work Supervisor at Kane Glen Hazel.  “We have cared for a number of HD residents over the years and are well aware of how overwhelming the disease can be”.

The meeting is open to the public.
 
For more information, contact Judy Fockler, Social Worker Supervisor at Kane Glen Hazel, at 412.422.6800 or Bill LaLonde, Community Outreach Representative at 412.422.6773.
