This is a new international registry for the Huntington’s disease community. The purpose of our registry is to provide a platform to instantly connect our HD loved ones to research and science through clinical trials and studies. Help 4 HD International is able to work directly with the international Huntington’s community due to the fact that we are not regulated by an IRO.
HELP 4 HD REGISTRY
The Help 4 HD Relief Fund was started to help individuals in the HD/JHD community with emergency support. Many times, our community needs money for medication, food, clothing, and other necessities. When individuals are in limbo with social services or loss of employment and benefits, this fund will give relief to people who are in dire need, as long as there is money in this special account. There are very few organizations that have been willing to help our beloved HD/JHD families with an emergency fund. Individuals can apply for assistance by completing the online form.

Recognizing the need to educate law enforcement about Huntington’s disease, we launched LEEP in 2014 at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in Orlando, FL. We are on a mission to educate our police officers, firefighters, EMTs and other law enforcement officials about how to identify HD and other neurological disorders and how to approach individuals who may be cognitively impaired. Please support this very important program.

THE HUNTINGTON'S POST
Highly Interactive Participant Education (HIPE) Description: Help 4 HD conceived this interactive program in response to the needs of families within the HD community. Together, caregivers, patients, and medical professionals versed in HD will discuss scenarios that plague families and will, as a group, suggest strategies and tactics for dealing with these issues. This will allow the community, particularly families that have tried other options without much success, to look at possible solutions to common problems. It will also allow professionals to learn more from the community about the issues we face. Help 4 HD envisions a group of people with similar but different backgrounds sharing ideas about situations that are often difficult to handle. Caregivers can support others in similar positions, and professionals can support these conversations with added direction and advice. We see this program as a way of offering to families within the HD community and to medical professionals a “tool kit” for dealing with a wide range of issues.

HELP 4 JHD DOCUMENTARY
This is a new program designed to promote JHD research and awareness. Our first walk was on June 13, 2015, at McKinley Park in Sacramento, CA, to raise money for Dr. Jan Nolta’s JHD Research Initiative (the first of its kind ever for JHD) at UC Davis. Since that event the community has come together through Help 4 JHD and hosted events across the country. All net proceeds from these events went directly to JHD research.
