Four (4) years to the day, John and I took off on a book tour, in our RV, to promote the nonfiction book I had just published,Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s.
Before we headed East on I80, I had mapped out nine (9) Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Team Hope Walks, in the Midwest, that we could attend over a period of three (3) months. I had talked to the coordinator of each Walk, to make sure it was ok, and was welcomed with open arms. When the walk was concluded, I calculated the proceeds from books sold that day, and wrote a check to the HDSA Chapter/Affiliate hosting the event.
In every book I sold, I wrote, We Can Never Lose HOPE….
