Imagine the double-whammy fighting your own cancer battle and getting a phone call from your mother who needs your help after she has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
That was the dilemma our guest Barbara Milton Jr. was faced with after her mother Barbara Sr. was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. And Barbara Jr. has turned a deathbed promise to her mother to share her story into an incredibly powerful memoir called “Heeding The Caregiver Call.”
In this magical conversation, Barbara shares vulnerably and earnestly about her own struggles during her mother’s illness. But she also shares some of the lighter moments of their journey – Barbara shares a story about a video chat smartphone app that was particularly charming. And she shares openly about issues of race, LGBT issues, and socioeconomic issues, all the while she re-meets her mother for the first time as she says goodbye.
It’s a remarkable book, and this is a remarkable conversation with a remarkable woman.
