Rocklin, Calif. - Tuesday, Mar. 1, owners Christopher Rubino and Henry Carrillo Jr. of Rubino's Ristorante have partnered with Huntington's Disease Society of America - HDSA to raise money and help find a cure for this dreadful disease. Rubino's Ristorante is doing its part by selling Hearts for Huntington's and has set a goal of raising a total $5000 in donations. If you would like to help them reach their goal, send your donations to Rubino's Ristorante - 5015 Pacific Street, Rocklin, CA 95677. You can make Checks payable to HSDA. All proceeds benefit HDSA research. Huntington's Disease - HD is a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder that results in a loss of cognitive, behavioral and physical control, and for which, presently, there is no treatment or cure. HD slowly diminishes the affected individual's ability to walk, think, talk and reason. Symptoms usually appear in an individual between 30 and 50 years of age and progress over a 10 to 25 year period. Eventually, a person with HD becomes totally dependent upon others for his or her care. More than 30,000 people in the United States are currently diagnosed with HD and 200,000 are at risk. Each of their siblings and children has a 50 percent risk of developing the disease. Although medications can relieve some symptoms in certain individuals, research has yet to find a means of conquering or even slowing the deadly progression of HD. Rubino's Ristorante will be hosting a Winemaker's Dinner Event to benefit Huntington's Disease Society of America in the late summer. Along with excellent food and wine there will be a silent and live auction. More details to come.
About Huntington's Disease
"Huntington's disease - HD results from genetically programmed degeneration of brain cells... This degeneration causes uncontrolled movements, loss of intellectual faculties, and emotional disturbance. HD is a familial disease, passed from parent to child through a mutation in the normal gene... At this time, there is no way to stop or reverse the course of HD. Now that the HD gene has been located, investigators are continuing to study the HD gene with an eye toward understanding how it causes disease in the human body" - ninds.nih.gov.
