Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month

Over the last years, May has been Huntington Disease Awareness Month. Starting off at the Huntington’s Society of Canada, Awareness Month and the #LightItUp4HD campaign has grown into a global movement.

During May, buildings, monuments and statues worldwide will be lit up in blue and purple. Blue to raise awareness of Huntington’s disease, purple of Juvenile Huntington’s.

In addition to the #LightItUp4HD campaign, events are taking place worldwide to raise awareness and break down stigma. May 2017, Pope Francis met 2000 people impacted by Huntington’s Disease in the Vatican. May 2019, the European Huntington Association kicked off Awareness Month with HD on the Bike.

Join awareness month by lighting up your home and share your photos on social media using #LightItUp4HD.
