About us

My name is Morgan McLane and I created "Barbara Lee's Fast Track to a Cure for Huntington's Disease" in honor of my Aunt Barbara who was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease (HD) in December, 1999 and lost her battle April, 2010. Barbara led quite a normal life. Getting married and having two daughters. In her 40's her life changed forever. Beginning with subtle changes in her personality and physical capabilities. Now we realize this was the beginning of her disease. HD is an inherited, degenerative brain disorder that results in the progressive loss of control of both the mind and the body. Approximately 30,000 people in the US are living with HD, with another 200,000 assumed at risk. Each child of an affected parent has a 50% chance of inheriting the disease. In 2005, Aunt Barbara was placed in a nursing, confined to a wheelchair and began having difficulty in speaking and swallowing. HD is an especially difficult condition because it robs the affected person not only of their health and independence, but also the memories of family, friends and a lifetime of experiences.

There is no cure.

As we enter the seventh year of Fast Track Autocross Fundraiser, we hope you join us in raising funds and awareness of Huntington's Disease. Your support will put Huntington's Disease on a Fast Track to the finish line of finding a cure.

  • Since 1999, the HDSA has committed more than $18 million to fund research with the goal of finding effective treatments to slow Huntington’s disease. Our past research efforts have also helped increase the number of scientists working on HD and have shed light on many of the complex biological mechanisms involved in HD.
