In December 2017, John and I mailed a $9,015.00 check to Louise Vetter, Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) President and CEO, which was the profit from books sold since I published Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s in April 2017.
Louise sent an email thanking us for our donation, and it was then I asked if I may sell my book again at the 2018 National Convention scheduled for June 7-9 in Los Angeles. Her response was, “We’re happy to offer you the same opportunity as you had at last year’s Convention”.
Well, I’m thrilled to say the least. Last year at the National Convention in Schaumburg, IL, I sold 63 books in three hours. And the convention attendance was the highest in its 32 years; approximately 1,000 folks.
So, I hope to see many of my Facebook Friends at the convention. Please stop by my table and buy a book; $7.00 will be donated to HDSA for every book sold.
We Can Never Lose HOPE……………
