Why I Chose “Watching Their Dance” As The Title Of My Nonfiction Book

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin, HD Advocate

From the moment I began writing my nonfiction book, I knew what the title would be; Watching Their Dance.  It made sense to me because that is what I had done for 24 years, watched my three dear sisters-in-law, Lora, Marcia and Cindy struggle with Huntington’s disease, each with their own unique dance.  

When I first heard about the disease, it was referred to as  Huntington’s Chorea.  The word Chorea is described as an abnormal involuntary movement derived from the Greek word “dance”. It is characterized by brief, abrupt, irregular, unpredictable, non-stereotyped movements. 

The picture is from Chris Furbee’s movie, Huntington’s Dance, that he produced.  https://www.facebook.com/huntingtons.dance/

The nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family at Risk for Huntington’s is my inaugural book.  It’s an inspirational love story while living with the uncertainty of my husband, John, inheriting the fatal brain disorder, Huntington’s disease, which has no cure.
