Kathy Gibson understands Huntington’s disease and the challenges it poses for both the affected individual and their caregiver. She has used her experience as a caregiver to her sister to create a series of signed, limited archival edition gicleé prints that capture the essence of a person with HD. Her wish, in creating these works, is to validate and remind all caregivers that your journey has meaning as well as to stimulate conversation and understanding among those affected by HD and the caregiving community.
Each gicleé image is 11” x 14” (though a few are larger at 14” x 14”). Each costs $125 including tax, shipping and handling. Shown at left are a representative sample of her works. You can view all of these limited edition prints in the Gallery by going to kgibsonart.com. As part of our partnership with Kathy, 15% of your purchase will be donated back to HDSA. To purchase one of these extraordinary prints, contact Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kathy Gibson is a distinguished multiple media artist living on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. You may have met Kathy when she exhibited a select number of her original works at the 2016 HDSA Annual Convention in Baltimore this past June.
I’m Still Me Activity Cards
Designed by HD community member Brian Schrag, these light hearted activity cards help persons with HD to engage with those not familiar with HD. As symptoms progress, many times individuals affected by HD find it difficult and at times embarrassing to talk about what is happening to them. I’m still me cards provide a way to connect with the community at large.
A set of 50 cards costs $12.00. You can read more about the cards and purchase a set by going to www.etsy.com/shop/SchragCreations. You’ll also find the HD Blues t-shirts he designed.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Five Feet Apart meets Tell Me Three Things in this YA contemporary novel about two sisters, one summer, and a diagnosis that changes everything.
Abby needs to escape a life that she no longer recognizes as her own. Her old life–the one where she was a high school volleyball star with a textbook-perfect future–has been ripped away. Abby and her sister, Brooke, have received a letter from their estranged dad informing them he has Huntington’s disease, a fatal, degenerative disorder that you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. And when the sisters agree to genetic testing, one of them tests positive.
Fleeing to Catalina Island for the summer, Abby is relieved to be in a place where no one knows her tragic history. But when she meets aspiring documentary filmmaker Ben–tall, outdoorsy, easygoing, with eyes that don’t miss a thing–she’s thrown off her game. Ben’s the kind of guy who loves to figure out people’s stories. What if he learns hers?

ABOUT THE BOOK
Whether you know him as Steve Yanofsky or Steve Young, Young at Heart: Randolph, Radio and the Road to Retirement is an emotional journey down a long and winding road that leads from growing up in Dorchester, then Randolph, to having a terrifying front-row seat at the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. This journey is also sprinkled with some of Steve’s poetry and intriguing sports stories plus a look at some of his memorable friends, many from Steve’s 41 years in radio, encompassing seven radio stations which he still refers to as “his families.” Today, he enjoys life with his lovely wife, Paula, spending valued time with his son, Daniel, and wife, Merry, plus appreciating all of the benefits of retirement. Young at Heart: Randolph, Radio and the Road to Retirement is also a loving look at treasured time spent with his family who shaped and molded Steve into the man he is today; a man of conscience, trustworthiness, and a self-proclaimed sports geek. We hope you enjoy the journey.
