About The Quilt
Members of the Hunt-Dis internet support group initiated a national Huntington's Disease Memorial Quilt project to honor loved ones with Huntington's Disease.
This was a major undertaking and through the support of HDSA Chapters, HD Support Groups and HD Centers of Excellence Phase I of the Quilt is 120 squares! The Quilt was unveiled at the 2001 HDSA Convention in San Diego.
Phase II of the Quilt project has been intiated with plans to unveil this section, along with the orginal (Phase I Quilt), at the 2003 HDSA National Convention in Houston, Texas.
