I would like to dedicate some exciting news today to the memory of my mother, Judy, who died 2 years ago with advanced dementia. My book, "Inside the Dementia Epidemic: A Daughter's Memoir," is now listed as a Wall Street Journal best seller (e-books, nonfiction)!
Since the best seller list goes out through the Associated Press, it should appear in papers across the country (I saw it in my local paper today!). Mom would be so happy to know that her story may help more people caring for an aging parent or a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia. She believed in the power of books. And she believed in me. Though we often had a rocky relationship as mother and daughter, she was always my most stalwart cheerleader. Thank you, Mom. This honor is for you.
