The Purple Road is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Saint Cloud, Florida. It was time for us to show the world the deadliest disease known to humanity - Juvenile Huntington's disease (JHD). Through a labor of love and minimum funding, we produced 'The Purple Road.' This documentary takes you on an international journey into the lives of children who are ravaged by Juvenile Huntington's disease. This hereditary, genetic, and fatal brain disease, devastates the patient and family unit with only one outcome - death. Imagine being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, Schizophrenia, MS, Bi-polar disorder, Dementia, and depression, all at the same time. This terminal illness is Juvenile Huntington's disease. The Purple Road is a collection of stories of families fighting for the lives of their children...fighting to keep their sanity...fighting to find a viable treatment or the cure. The Purple Road is a journey across the USA, Canada, England and Wales, and Germany. Every disease-oriented group has a specific color or symbol to broaden awareness of their mission. The color purple is our 'symbol,' and The Purple Road is our mission to broaden global awareness of Juvenile Huntington's disease (JHD). Too many of our children have earned their JHD Warrior Wings, and it is our promise to thousands of families across the world, to tell these stories.
