THIS IS A NATIONAL MOVEMENT TO CHANGE THE FUTURE OF HHT
Cure HHT challenged its United States HHT community to a simple goal:
At least 1 person in each state across the U.S.A. organizing at fundraiser for HHT.
The more people who sign up, step up and raise money for HHT,
the better odds we have at getting closer to a cure and changing the future for the
thousands who face living with HHT every day.
The 50 State Challenge is a national movement for the U.S. HHT community to join Cure HHT during a pivotal year. Help us make real strides in improving the lives of those with HHT. We know we set our sights high for 2018 to make real change, and we can’t do this work alone. Join us and together we will change the future of HHT.

This is a pivotal year for Cure HHT. With your help, our major breakthroughs this year in HHT treatment and management will create a lasting impact for HHT patients and families everywhere.
50 State Challenger Spotlight
Get inspired by members of our own HHT community who have taken on the 50 State Challenge
Meet Lindsay Vos.
Lindsay is leading the 50 State Challenge in Michigan with a Facebook Fundraiser!
Lindsay Vos, a recreational therapist who loves the outdoors almost as much as flamin' hot cheetos and Detroit's sports teams, has taken on the 50 State Challenge to help Cure HHT continue to bring HHT patients and doctors together.
Lindsay wasn't diagnosed diagnosed with HHT until 2015, when her father passed away from renal cell carcinoma and several complications stemming from HHT. She had her own scare with the disease when she had an intracerebral hemorrhage, but her incredible resiliency and positive attitude had her acing her therapy as soon as she was able.
You can watch Lindsay's journey and recovery as #VOStrong in a special video created by Bill Trail and the Cleveland Clinic.
Lindsay wanted to take on the 50 State Challenge and bring Michigan the W for the new statewide challenge. She decided to create a Facebook fundraiser to reach all her friends and family, and is so grateful for the support she's received so far.
Go Lindsay! Way to be #VOStrong!
