Alzheimer’s is a fatal, inflammatory, degenerative brain disease that causes a gradual decline in brain activity. There is a terrible stigma against Alzheimer’s sufferers and their families; social isolation takes hold as friends, family and acquaintances interact with the sufferer and their caregivers less and less out of feelings of discomfort and fear.
Daisy Roberts was a highly educated, loving wife and mother. In 2008, her adoring son, Dr. Norris Lee Roberts, Jr. learned that his mother suffered from Alzheimer’s. The resulting grief urged him to write down his thoughts to help him process this terrible news. Those thoughts became Mama is Still Here! A Mother and Son’s Love Passage Through Alzheimer’s Disease, an inspirational tribute to his Mom and a guide for those who find themselves in a similar situation. It takes the reader on a journey to greater awareness, understanding and acceptance for Alzheimer’s sufferers and their loved ones through 21 stories, daily prayers and devotionals from Scripture.
“Mama Is Still Here!” is getting critical acclaim from those who have read and view it as a seminal work for those dealing with Alzheimer’s. One recent reviewer summed up the feelings of many when he wrote, “I commend the author for telling this story as he did. This book is one of the most inspirational yet heart-wrenching tales ever told and I’m so glad that I read it.”
Dr. Norris Lee Roberts is an accomplished professional with over 20 years experience in Information Technology and Education. He holds a doctorate in Education and numerous degrees in Business Administration.
