WeHaveAFace.org England and Wales
WeHaveAFace.org England and Wales aim to broaden awareness of Huntington's disease and Juvenile Huntington's disease in our communities. Huntington's disease is a hereditary, genetic, and terminal brain disease for which there is no treatment or cure. Imagine having ALS, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Bi-polar, and Schizophrenia all at the same time. This is Huntington's disease!
WeHaveAFace England and Wales is registered with Companies House. We look forward to receiving our Charity Status in 2018. We will provide an assistance fund to better the lives of our patients and families.
