HHT takes another family member

Gary Jones
My uncle Gary Donald Jones was our family HHT ambassador. His father passed this to his only two children (sons). I'm not sure how many of my uncle's four blood children was passed down this disease nor my dad's four birth children except I have started the genetic testing for our family and I'm positive. Two of my three blood children have also been positively diagnosed. My uncle passed last week and was buried yesterday. Cause of death is an anureusym caused by a PAVM or many thanks to HHT and I don't know if they could have saved him if he had gone to the E/R as soon as symptoms started. Please get your children tested for the preventative things they can. Unfortunately, my 15 year old daughter has a PAVM that is being watched by UCLA.

When HHT touches someone close to you, it's natural to want to share their story with others.

HHT is a relentless disease that affects over one million people around the world. Many of those people are robbed of the opportunities that would allow them to lead a full and normal life. Cure HHT is the only organization in the world dedicated solely to research, education, and advocacy that will allow us to find a cure for this disease. You can make a tremendous impact on our mission and honor a loved one by creating a Memorial or Tribute.

Whether your family has managed HHT for generations or you are the first to be diagnosed, everyone has a story to tell. One of the dynamics that keeps our small community so strong is the constant opportunity HHT families have to relate to one another.
