Overview

"Tangles, plaques, neurons

The brain's shriveling tissue

Lost in a black hole."

Remember Me is a must-read collection of poetry and artwork portraying the declining effects of Alzheimer's disease on patients and its impact on caregivers.

Debut author Cheryl Kempner takes readers on a real and honest journey through the patient's eyes and onto a caregiver's perspective. Her poetry starts a conversation about the plight of a person with dementia and the family caring for them. Cheryl's words are hard-hitting at some points, retelling dwindling moments through the eyes of her mother to show how gripping the condition is for those diagnosed. Accompanied by the visual decline of her mother's artwork, the book offers a creative depiction of how this disease overcomes one's mind.

Cheryl wants caregivers to feel less alone, validating their feelings along this challenging path. She authentically remains transparent with readers as she openly expresses the truth behind the inner conflicts faced while watching the decline of a loved one's cognition in this way.

Remember Me is an artistic tool of awareness, reminding us that while those with Alzheimer's may not remember us, it is essential we remember for them.
