Why I Blog

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin

I started writing a nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s, in 2010. The experts in the book world suggested developing a website, mine is WordPress, before a book is published to have a platform to promote it on.               

So, I started building my Author Website, in 2014 and my first blog was published on May 1, 2015.

Today, I write a blog twice a week and 80% of them are centered around Huntington’s Disease and my experience, heartache, tough decisions, stress, over 36 years, with three sisters-in-law dying from the disease.  What is Huntington’s Disease 

My goal in writing a blog is to disseminate information to Huntington’s disease (HD) communities in the United States.  I vowed to myself, that through the blog, FaceBook, Twitter and LinkedIn, I would share resources so no one had to feel alone.  When Lora, Marcia and Cindy were struggling with HD the resources were scarce and John and I felt very alone.

The nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA), has a blog on their website that is published weekly, reported by Dr. Leora Fox, PhD, Senior Manager, Research & Mission Programs.
