Huntington's Association of South Africa (HASA)
Huntington's Disease (HD) is an inherited brain disorder. It causes cells in specific parts of the brain to die. As the brain cells die, people with HD become less able to control movements, recall recent events, make decisions, and control emotions. The disease leads to incapacitation and, some 5 to 30 years after onset, death. There is no cure and no effective treatment, although drugs exist that can help with involuntary movements and emotional problems.
