The Promise

Marc D. McGill

After Marc D. McGill learned of his wife's Huntington's disease diagnosis, he promised her she would not have to go to a nursing home-a promise that Marc was not prepared to keep. Many times, Marc wanted to break that promise, but his wife deserved more than that. Kept at home, Terry McGill passed away in December of 2022.


Through their eight-year journey navigating Huntington's disease, the couple tried to ignore Terry's diagnosis, often struggling against it. However, the couple always loved each other, and cherished every moment spent with their kids, grandkids, family, and friends, to create memories to last a lifetime. The Promise is a unique collection of poetry offering an intimate glimpse into the couple's life dealing with this impossible disease.
