HD Advocates

Trey Gray-Huntington’s Disease Philanthropist

Paul Erdman Band

I admire Trey Gray, the musician, father, Huntington’s disease (HD) advocate and a very kind, gentle soul.  He has done so much for the HD community and continues to do so through the Huntington’s Disease Foundation that Trey, Doug Michael and Anett Pappas founded together in 2015. The Foundation is recognized and registered in Texas as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity. https://www.huntingtonsdiseasefoundation.org

Trey Gray is a professional drummer. He has played for Brooks ‘n Dunn, Ronnie Dunn, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill and Jewel, just to name a few.  In 2003, he was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease and his 3 children have a 50/50 chance of inheriting this disease too. His family members (mother and uncle) have both died of Huntington’s disease and he witnessed the pain and struggle as they went through each dreadful phase of HD. No person should have to go through that experience, which drove Trey into finding positive ways into turning his disease into something positive and inspirational. His new CD is available:  The Journey-cd-pre-order-ships-in-april.

I try and keep track of what Trey’s up to as a drummer and in his private life.  He shares his personal life on his Facebook wall https://www.facebook.com/trey.gray.564 and his mantra is “I’m grateful for today“.



Trey wrote a book jacket comment that appears on the back on 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 from the book are being donated to the nonprofit, Huntington’s Disease Society of America.  Author website: https://www.theresecrutchermarin.com

To date, John and I have donated $14,100.00 to HDSA which is the profit from the book since it was published.
