Help Turn Chicago Blue for Huntington's Disease

1,185 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Huntington’s Disease or HD is one of the most researched and studied neurological and hereditay diseases in the world. Caused by one mutated gene, over 1500 families in Illinois and over 30,000 people throughout the United States suffer with this always fatal disease. It is estimated that an additional 250,000 people are at risk for inheriting the mutated form of the gene. Most people have never heard of HD as it probably does not affect their family. We want to change that by making more people aware of and advocates for HD families throughout the United States. We have no Lou Gehrig to advocate for us (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), no Michael J. Fox to advocate for us (Parkinson’s Disease), no Glen Campbell to advocate for us (Alzheimer’s Disease) yet each of those neurological diseases are very similar to HD: they all affect a portion of the brain causing premature death. All of those diseases are well known. Yet the research discoveries in HD may in fact help to find a treatment for each of them. We hope you agree and will sign our petition to Turn Chicago Blue! Imagine seeing the “Big Four” with the tops of their buildings in royal blue. The John Hancock, the Willis Tower, Trump Tower, the Wrigley Building and the AON building are our targets during the month of May of 2015, declared by the U.S. Congress as Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month. We also would love to see Buckingham Fountain at the lakefront spraying shades of blue with their lighted displays. If not us, then who will advocate for the families that suffer physically, emotionally, and financially with this devastating disease? Please sign our petition!

    Hi! This is pretty informative.
    I was suffering from Huntington's disease (HD) for over 4 years. I was prescribed several Anti psychotic drugs but couldn't see any improvement. I would basically go from one outbreak to the next. Finally, on my best friend's recommendation. I was advice to use some natural herbal medicine made by Dr Molemen i decided to try the rescue herbal remedy which are made in liquid form with natural root and herbs from Dr Molemen. Within a few weeks, I could see improvements in the symptoms. The Muscle problems, Slow or abnormal eye movements,Feelings of irritability are all gone just within 2 weeks. I have been using this medicine since then and now new outbreaks have completely stopped. I would recommend my other friends out there who are suffering from herpes to give this medicine a try.
