Why we're doing Jeans for Genes’ Bake It Blue
As a lot of people know, we have a rare, genetic, neuro-degenerative disease in our family. Huntington's Disease is like a mix of MND and Parkinson's disease. Team Kirby would like you to know:
"Our Grandma has a disease called Huntington's. When you start to show that you have the disease you start to move around uncontrollably, but when it gets worse it stops you from being able to eat and breath and stuff. It is scary and sad.
Our Mum does not have the disease, which means that we will never get it. But, heaps of other people in our family have it or don't know yet. This means that some of our cousins might have Huntington's.
This would make us really sad, to see our cousins get sick.
We hope we can raise enough money to help our family, and other families like us."
There’s lots of work to do, but there is also lots of hope.
