Dear Diary


1999 - 2001

May 1999 - Our second series of “Sharing Wisdom” Conferences take to the road. 

Over the years, I’ve spoken at a variety of healthcare events, from Scleroderma to Alzheimer’s, AIDS, Huntington’s disease and Stroke conferences. I love this part of what I get to do. I love interacting with caregivers and look forward to speaking each and every time.

April 2000 - A very big month. We move once again to larger facilities and hire a new publisher, Steven Barg and Managing Editor Nancy Schonwalter. We are honored with the first annual Media award from The Southern Gerontological Society 

May 2000 -  We create our weekly online newsletter and subscriptions soar.

June 2000 - Gramp, Mom and I appear in Parade magazine and Gramp passes away.

November 2000 - Over the past three months, I conducted over twenty-five radio interviews. My favorites are the call-in shows. Through the shows, I am able to talk with caregivers from Miami, Florida to Nome, Alaska. 

Our Magazine Special Focuses are an annual tradition by this point. The topics have included: Cancer; Depression; Alzheimer’s; Multiple Sclerosis; AIDS; MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) and Incontinence.

June 2001 -  Finally, the final draft of my first book “The Fearless Caregiver” is overnighted to the book publisher. 

June 2001 - I can hardly believe it, but Gramp is gone a full year.

July 4, 2001  - The sixth year of our own personal Independence Day; the distribution of the first issue of Today’s Caregiver Magazine.

July 5, 2001 - The first day of our seventh year of publication, with many more to follow.

September 11, 2001 -  In the middle of writing my weekly newsletter, not only does the tone of the message change mid-sentence, so does the world, as we know it.

November 1, 2001 -  the first copy of The Fearless Caregiver book arrives.
