Wristbands To Support Huntington's Disease Awareness

Use Custom Bracelets for Awareness Campaigns

Huntington’s disease has no cure. But personalized rubber wristbands can help you to spread awareness. Current research suggests that 1 in every 10,000 Americans has HD and more than 250,000 others are at-risk of having inherited it from a parent. Once considered a rare disease, Huntington’s is now thought of as one of the more common hereditary diseases. More research is needed to help people live with Huntington’s and support families as they fight against it. Huntington’s disease awareness wristbands can help.

Huntington’s Disease Awareness Wristbands

Many events to increase awareness occur in conjunction Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month in May. The recognized awareness color for Huntington’s is blue. When you design your Huntington’s disease awareness bracelets with Amazing Wristband’s online tool, you can choose your customized color, message, font, artwork and more. The tool is easy to use and many of our silicone bands can be delivered within just a few weeks, and even sooner if necessary.

Facts about Huntington’s disease Awareness

Scientists identified the defective gene that causes Huntington's disease in 1993. Now, people can have diagnostic genetic tests to find out if they have the disease, or if they carry the inherited gene. Here are some important facts from the Huntington’s Disease Society of America:

  • Symptoms include personality changes, mood swings, depression, forgetfulness, impaired judgment, unsteady gait, involuntary movements, slurred speech and difficulty swallowing.
  • Approximately 30,000 Americans have HD, but the devastating effects of the disease touch many more.
  • Every child of a parent with Huntington’s has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the expanded gene that causes the disease.
  • If the child has not inherited the expanded gene, he or she will never develop the disease and cannot pass it on to their children.
  • There is no cure for Huntington’s. Although medications can relieve some symptoms, research has yet to find a means of slowing the deadly progression of the disease.
