May is Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month, a time to remember those we lost to HD and to honor them. So, today I think of Lora, Marcia and Cindy Marin, my three (3) sisters-in-law, embrace their memory admiring the courage they portrayed during this HD journey.
If my heart had wings I would fly to heaven and enfold these three (3) women and thank them for the enrichment they bestowed upon my life. The people with whom you surround yourself have an enormous impact on your life. In many ways, they shape it.
The book I penned, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s, is to honor these three (3) women who taught me about forgiveness, kindness and unconditional love. John continues to remind me, by the way he lives his life, of these valuable virtues.
Even though my children, Keith and Vanessa, only knew their aunts for a short time, Huntington’s disease stole them away from us, they positively impacted their lives and for that I’m also thankful.
We Can Never Lose HOPE…..
