Why Did I Start the HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate?

Many people have asked me why I started the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate , with the help of many Huntington’s Disease (HD) advocates, when I don’t live there?  Facebook Page

I believe the San Francisco Bay Area, with 7 million people, deserved to have a HDSA Chapter/Affiliate to support the local Huntington’s disease families.   

I also had another reason in mind.  Over the past three years, I’ve been bugging John to move to the San Francisco Bay Area to be closer to our children. I knew one day John would relent and he did last summer, when it was a brutally hot summer in Auburn CA.

Keith and Fran had their first child four months ago and will soon be in a home in Novato CA to grow their family.  Vanessa and Scott bought a home in Petaluma, north San Francisco, and love it there.

So, we sold our house in Auburn CA and are building a 1200 sq. ft. home on Vanessa and Scott’s property in Petaluma and are temporarily living in our cabin in Lake Tahoe while it is being built.

We Can Never Lose HOPE….
