Connect with our local chapter:

We are an affiliate of the Huntington's Disease Society of America, a national, not-for-profit, voluntary health agency based in Greater Baltimore area.  The purpose of our affiliate is:
  • To help individuals affected by Huntington's Disease (HD) and their families through support and services
  • To educate both the public and health care professionals about Huntington's disease
  • To promote and support research directed at discovering a treatment and ultimately a cure for Huntington's disease. 
While there is still no cure for HD, today there is more hope than ever that we can beat this disease.  Until then, our volunteers will strive to provide support and sustenance to our HD families, knowing that while research provides hope for the future, we must provide care for our HD community today.  We have become an active community, educating ourselves, sharing information, and advocating for ourselves and our loved ones. 

The Chesapeake Bay Affiliate meets in various locations around the Greater Baltimore, Maryland area, as well as by phone on occasion.  We are actively welcoming new volunteers to join us in furthering our mission to improve the lives of those affected by Huntington's disease. 

Current volunteer needs include organizing committee members for the upcoming Team Hope Walk and Celebration of Hope, and general and administrative duties.  Some tasks can be done by computer, remotely.  If you would like to volunteer some of your time, please contact:
