Many of you know I’m involved in the Huntington’s disease community and a board member on the HDSA Northern California Chapter. Until I published my book, Watching Their Dance, I was unable to speak about John and my life at-risk for the cruelest disease because of the grief I carried in my soul. Writing my story was a healing journey which allowed me to place the grief in a book and show the world what Huntington’s disease families go through for generations. http://www.hdsa.org
The following are reasons why I wrote the book and outcomes since I published April 2017.
- The book is a personal HD fundraiser/HD awareness project and 100% of the proceeds from books sold in the U.S. are being donated to Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) to help in the fight against this horrific disease that killed my mother-in-law and 3 sisters-in-law. By heightening awareness, I hope to increase donations from folks who have never donated to our cause.
- It’s an inspirational love story, over 38 years, and how John and I lived in the shadow of Huntington’s disease. Since April 2017, I’ve sold 1,500 books/ebooks and my goal is 5,000. My book can be found on my Author Website: www.theresecrutchermarin.com, Amazon, B&N and other book websites. $7.00 is donated to HDSA each time the book is purchased.
- John and I donated $9,015.00 to HDSA in December 2017 which was the profit from books sold since I published in April 2017.
We Can Never Lose HOPE………………..
