This is a special book that deals with a serious illness — Alzheimer’s disease. Through Ruth Swerdloff’s journal and observations by family members, the haunting truth of what this disease steals from a family becomes clear.

It is also intended as resource for caregivers and family members who are faced with caring for someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Ruth Swerdloff Research Fund to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

“A Must-Read-Now for anyone with a family member or friend suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.” — Larry D. Thompson, Best-selling author, The Insanity Plea

“IN HER OWN WORDS is at once harrowing, inspiring and engrossing. An emotional journey that also provides practical and crucial information for care-givers.” — Dennis Palumbo, MFT, licensed psychotherapist and author
