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
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
