Shelton and Devin Fuqua
Shelton was diagnosed at the age of 11. When we found out his biological father had HD we went to see a genetics doctor. He refused to test him because he was not showing any signs, that we thought anyways. A year later he is doing poorly in school and showed signs that he never had before. We were sent to a neurologist who actually got the ball rolling and had an MRI done that confirmed my worst fears. Our lives have changed so much in the last 6 months. Shelton can no longer ride his bike or play football. This has got to be the worst disease ever. We just want our baby back to the way he was before. His brother Devin was recently diagnosed the end of December 2019, with juvenile huntington’s disease too. We need a CURE!
