I am tickled pink to know that this website continues to be viewed around the world daily! Through viewers’ posts and emails, I have learned what an immense relief it is to other caregivers to know that they’re not alone and what to expect with this complicated disease.
To offer better support and insight to caregivers throughout their ongoing journey, today we are proudly revealing our new website: www.FranklySpeakingAlz.com!
I hope that you will share and pass on this new site to others who are struggling with Alzheimer’s. A new PROBLEM/SOLUTION format imparts the priceless lessons I have learned as a caregiver. Plus, the new WEBISODE SERIES format starts at the beginning of my family’s story, revealing in much more detail the roller coaster ride that overran our lives, including footage of all my family members to demonstrate the complex dynamics of a family in turmoil.
Please know that, because there is such useful information here, I will continue to keep this Original Blog LIVE, but I will no longer be posting to it. You can always find my Original Blog at www.FranklySpeakingAlz.WordPress.com or simply by clicking the bright red ORIGINAL BLOG button on my new site!
Good luck to each of you on your journey and please stay in touch by subscribing to my new Webisode Series at www.FranklySpeakingAlz.com!
Peace and love.
The famous words of my best friend, Jacquelyn Pierce, 4 long years ago. Sobbing on her couch, reeling from my dad’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, overly consumed by the disease destroying our family, she literally SCREAMED me into action!
It took a few days, but once her words sank in, I started rolling a (borrowed) camera. I had no idea what exactly would come of it all, but since I “speak” video, I started shooting what was happening to my family and what was going on inside of me.
Fast forward 4 years and 300+ hours of footage later…
…Ladies and Gentlemen, I proudly yet humbly present to you a movie trailer of my documentary in-the-making which I hope will help change the world of Alzheimer’s…

The other amazing thing is this: I’m blogging from Washington DC!! I’ve brought my trailer, my vision and my passion to the national Alzheimer’s Association Advocacy Forum where I hope to network, get my completion funding, and take this all to the next level…
Daddy-O would be proud! 😉
Cowboys have a classic stereotype of being tough, but I’m here to tell you that they’re really softies inside! 🙂 I think Dad knew the truth – he always wanted to grow up to be a cowboy. Which makes this tale even better!
