Boz Scaggs is John and my artist, a talented musician popular in the 1970’s. Whenever I hear a Boz song, I’m taken back to college and to my then boyfriend, John Marin, before the Marin secret was revealed. artist boz-scaggs biography

As I look at the pictures of my life with John through the years, my heart skips a beat because I almost didn’t live that life. When Huntington’s disease (HD) suddenly entered our life, it scared me to death and I questioned whether our LOVE would be enough? What is HD?
Out of fear, I left the relationship and my heart lived in the Lost and Found. For the next seven months, I did a lot of soul-searching and my emotions were all over the place. I was young and didn’t have many life experiences to shore up my doubts.
John eventually found my heart in the Lost and Found just as I discovered LOVE would get us through the years and if he got sick, I’d be there to care for him. That’s what you do for the people that you LOVE.
I’m grateful every day that I have had with John, the LOVE of my life, who is healthy, and thankful for his negative test for the mutated Huntingtin gene. Sometimes you just have to take a chance and listen to your heart. What is Huntington’s disease
We Can Never Lose HOPE…
