Inside the O'Briens
A NoveleBook - 2015
Joe O'Brien is a respected police officer from Charlestown, Massachusetts. A devoted husband and proud father of four children in their twenties, Joe begins experiencing bouts of disorganized thinking, uncharacteristic temper outbursts, and involuntary movements. He is forty-four, and as the symptoms worsen, he agrees to see a neurologist and is handed a diagnosis that will change his and his family's lives forever: Huntington's Disease. Huntington's is a lethal neurodegenerative disease with no treatment and no cure. Each of Joe's four children has a 50 percent chance of inheriting their father's disease, and a simple blood test can reveal their genetic fate.
