My brother, Leslie, was confronted with many obstacles as he traveled through a short lifetime. He never lost sight of his dream as a child to become a writer. This collection will take you on the journey of his life, in the early days, through happy and sad times, and later periods during his fight with Huntingtons Disease.

As his physical capabilities became more difficult he felt free spiritually and expressed himself through poetry. When his handwriting became illegible he still continued to scribble down his thoughts. Never did he give up hope. He had full knowledge of his destiny and independently met each day as a challenge. Throughout my life he encouraged me, and because of him I accomplished more than I thought possible. In preparation for this book, I have read these poems over and over and I am in awe of how I continue to be inspired.

Without a doubt, as you read through these pages, you will find poems that fill you heart with joy, fond memories, and hope. - Joan Foor Huntingtons Disease is a hereditary disorder that affects the brain cells causing uncontrolled body movements, lack of coordination, loss of ability to think and reason as well as psychological difficulties.

There are approximately 30,000 people in the United States who are affected by HD and another 200,000 who are at risk of developing the disease. HD generally strikes in mid-life, between the ages of 30-50, but cases as young as 2 years and as old as 80 have been reported. In 1993, the gene that causes HD was identified and a simple predictive test was developed to determine whether a person carries the defective gene or not. Those who do carry the gene will develop the disease (if they live long enough) and they CAN pass it onto each of their children.

Those who do not inherit the gene cannot pass HD onto any of their children - HD does no skip generations. There is currently no effective treatmen
