Theresa Westhead Huntington’s Disease

We were delighted to have Theresa come to speak to the Cumbria NA last week.  We had a large turnout of members at A Chance for Life in Penrith, and a lively discussion with Theresa afterwards.

Huntington’s disease, which is often called HD, is an hereditary disorder of the central nervous system. It used to be known as Huntington’s Chorea or HC. Huntington’s disease usually develops in adulthood and can cause a very wide range of symptoms. The disease affects both men and women.

She is keen to make contact with people interested in the disease and can be contacted at  01942 864645 theresa.westhead@hda.org.uk  She covers Cumbria, Lancashire, Bolton & Wigan
