In 2016, Jenne along with her family hosted the Freeze HD event in Los Angeles. She continues to participate in the HDSA annual Freeze HD event, along with other HD volunteer engagements with HDdenNoMore, and CHDI.

Kate wrote a book jacket comment that appears on the front of my nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s. 100% of the profits are being donated to HDSA. To date, John and Therese have donated $14,115.00. Therese’s author website: http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com
