Helping Others, Huntington's Disease

Kate Miner- Actress, Musician, and HD Advocate

I want to THANK Kate Miner for reading my manuscript and writing a book jacket comment for my book cover.    http://www.thisisminer.com/

Kate’s comment:  “Fatal and untreatable, Huntington’s Disease has been called the mother of all diseases, and those affected suffer from a devastating set of symptoms similar to those of ALS, Parkinson’s, dementia, and Alzheimer’s combined. “Watching Their Dance” offers a compelling glimpse into the lives of an HD family, navigating a world of loss and fear with courage and clarity.”

Since Huntington’s disease has affected her family, she is involved in the “Freeze HD Fundraiser” that takes place in Los Angeles each year.  Dr. Ed Wild, Annette Bening and Dr Jeff Carroll attended the 2nd Annual Freeze HD fundraiser to raise awareness for Huntington’s Disease at Bootleg Theater on September 24, 2016 in Los Angeles, California.

Kate was recently on Grey’s Anatomy. You can read about the episode on this link:  http://ew.com/recap/greys-anatomy-season-13-episode-11/2/

Until They Have A Face-110 Interviews with the Homeless People in Auburn CA

375_BOBSPKRHP2While searching for information on the homeless in Placer County I found this book.  It was published by an Auburn attorney and writer, Robert Litchfield in 2013.  There are one hundred and ten interviews with the homeless people who live in and around Auburn, California.

This is so cool!  I’m going to read it because it gives homeless people a voice. John and I may know some of them from the Homeless Center we volunteer at on Tuesdays at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Auburn.

P.S.  You can find it at Placer County Library.

Have a good day!    Therese
