To whom it may concern: My wife, Donna, was an Alzheimer’s caregiver for her mother, and her experience showed her that there are precious few resources for children regarding Alzheimer’s disease. This prompted her to write a book to help children cope with the shock and trauma of having an elder family member, afflicted with Alzheimer’s, move into the home. The book is unique in its first person approach and in the issues it addresses. We believe that this book would be of great benefit to the many families who must deal with this issue on a day-to-day basis. We’d like to submit a copy for your review, and if you believe it would be beneficial, that you add it to your library system or any list of suggested reading materials that you offer to the public. We will be donating ten percent of the profits specifically toward Alzheimer’s caregiver resources. Thanks for the work you do. Regards, John J. Dube
