The Manchester support group was set up by Sam Keenan. Her family are affected by Huntington's disease and her aim was to help local families. The group now covers a wide area from the East of Manchester Royton, Shaw, Oldham all the way through Manchester to Cheshire.
The aim still is to provide local families affected by Huntington's with a cuppa, chat and company. Everyone sits and chats and talks about what is happening to them at the moment knowing that the others there know exactly what they are going through.
We meet every couple of months on the last Wednesday of the month between 7 and 9pm. The meetings rotate venue every time to make sure that it’s not too far for people to travel.
