About the Author

Tracey S. Lawrence had a successful career in graphic arts when she became her father's caregiver in 2003 until he died in 2004. She then became her mother's caregiver until her death in 2015. As a result of her experience handling her parents' financial, health and caregiving concerns, Lawrence founded GrandFamilyPlanning, a membership organization that works with families seeking help related to parents, children, health issues and protection of assets.


"When I face the challenges in my life, I use journaling as an outlet for my thoughts and emotions. Never before have I read someone else's, until now. Dementia Sucks is a revealing journal-based story exploring the rapid decline Alzheimer's brings about. For all the horror of this disease, the journey of this book reveals something beautiful. You will discover the humanity, the joy, and the hope that is ever present, even in the darkest hour with tears streaming down your face."--Mike Michalowicz, author of Profit First
"Dementia Sucks says it all in two words. But if you are looking for answers to what is happening with someone you know who seems to be in slow mental descent, or has been diagnosed with dementia, Tracey Lawrence has left a brave, revealing, and valuable diary in your path. Pick it up and read it. You will find humor, pain, honesty, answers, and proof you are not alone. It is on one hand a manual for the multitudes coming to grips with this broad category of brain disease, on the other hand, a love story. Thank you, Tracey, for sharing your courageous tale."--Gary Donatelli, producer, 23 Blast and director of One Life to Live
