The Woody Guthrie Family

Happy Birthday Woody Guthrie

Last Sunday, Woody Guthrie would have been 107 years old.  Happy Birthday, Woody! 

Not everyone knows that Woody died from Huntington’s disease and his wife, Marjorie, organized the Committee to Combat Huntington Disease shortly after he died in 1967. After Marjorie’s death in 1983, the organization evolved into the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA), a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease and their family.  To learn more about Marjorie, visit: hdsa-pays-tribute-to-founder-marjorie-guthrie

I’m a Huntington’s Disease Advocate and volunteer for HDSA in the San Francisco Bay Area.

To learn about Woody’s achievements and contributions to the world, visit


Therese at the 2018 HDSA Annual Convention in LA.

The profits from my nonfiction book are being donated to the HDSA to help in the fight against Huntington’s disease. Since I published in April 2017, I’ve gifted over $14,000.00.  Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s can be found online as an e-book and hard book.
