HD Heroes

Christine Haught

My mother Christine Haught is my HD hero. HD has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, as she was diagnosed in her 30's. Our family had no clue what HD was, and we all lived with the fear of the unknown everyday. We were no longer able to provide the care she needed at home, and when I was 16 years old, my mother was placed in long term care. She lost her long and courageous battle to HD February 21, 2017 at 59 years old. I admire her for the fight she put up through all the years- staying as positive as possible. Hands down, she's the strongest person I know. I will continue to raise awareness for HD in hopes a cure can be found. The HD community is amazing-full of love, strength, and support for one another. We are all HD strong.
