Huntington’s disease (HD) is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure.  http://www.hdsa.org         https://help4hd.org/    https://www.wehaveaface.org/

Therese’s Midwest Book Tour-Part 1

A little over two (2) years ago, Chris Consentino, HDSA Marketing and Communications Director in the corporate office in NY, reached out to me because he had heard I was writing a book and it would have a fundraising component to it that involved HDSA.  Well, needless to say, I was thrilled and over discussing the project he offered to partner in the promotion of the book.  So, began our business relationship.  http://www.hdsa.org 

Last April, I finally held a book in my hand. Publishing Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s was a dream come true. My fundraising/HD Awareness Project was now ready to be presented to the world.

The second dream I had was taking a book tour to heighten awareness of Huntington’s disease and promote the book. John and I love traveling the highways and back roads, avoiding freeways, taking the time to enjoy the landscape, animals, agriculture in different states, so we traded in our fifth wheel and truck and purchased a 30 ft. motorhome. As John and I began to plan the tour, my job was to plot HDSA events we could attend after the National Convention and John was in charge of mapping out our route. Since we’ve never visited the Midwest, we saw it as an adventure.

The HDSA National Convention was held in Schaumburg, Illinois in June, 2017 and I represented the Northern California Chapter, and also a vendor for the promotion of my book. HDSA was generous and gave me a window on the second day of the convention for four (4) hours to sell the book. In that amount of time, I sold 63!  I also attended the Leadership Day and met the new Pacific Southwest Regional Development Director, Anita Dominguez, and Regional Development Manager Nanette Schlarmann. I can’t say enough about the positive experience I had at the convention.   http://northernca.hdsa.org/ 

            

Therese’s Book Tour will be continued on the next few blogs!

A Personal Fundraising Project Close to my Heart

I published the nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntingtons on April 1, 2017, which is a personal fundraising project. It’s the driving force behind the promotion of my book.  

If you are interested in supporting a worthwhile cause, funding research to find a therapy or cure for the genetic Huntington’s disease, and is a good read, please purchase my book.  Kirkus Review said, “This is a story more about the power of hope than the wages of Huntington’s”.  If you are reader who enjoys a love story with passion, you’ll find it here.

I’m donating 100% of the proceeds to the non-profit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America http://www.hdsa.org  in the U.S., because this is how John, my husband, and I can help in the fight against the cruelest disease on the planet, Huntington’s disease (HD).  In the U.S., 30,000 people live with HD and 250,000 live at risk, like John and his three sisters.

Watching Their Dance can be found on many sites on the internet.  To purchase it, please go to  http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com 

or  https://www.amazon.com/Mrs.-Therese-Marie-Crutcher-Marin/e/B06ZY85776   

Huntington’s disease is a fatal, genetic disease that progressive destroys the nerve cells in the brain. It’s like having Alzheimers, ALS and Parkison’s disease at the same time.  http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/huntingtons-disease/home/ovc-20321431
