Born Lucinda Maria Collins, Cindy is a native of South Florida. She is one of six children. Her father James H. Collins Jr. was a prominent banker and her mother, Mary Jane (MJ), was a housewife and artist and later became a travel agent. Cindy's parents enjoyed 53 loving years of marriage before her father passed away, leaving her mother acclimating to the early stages of Alzheimer's. Cindy received a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Florida and worked as a substitute teacher in Tennessee and the Florida Keys. Leaving education to become a Paralegal she has worked for the last 27 years in Fort Lauderdale where she and her partner of 18 years, Mike McGraw, reside. Within 6 months of her father's death Cindy took on the role of her mother's caregiver for approximately three years before her mother passed away. Still holding down her full time position as a paralegal, she found it necessary for her mother to live in a Senior Living Facility transitioning to an Assisted Living Facility and then an Alzheimer's Facility. The struggle to find a facility led her to obtain information that could help her find quality care for her mother, and eventually, to write this book. In addition to practical advice, Cindy wanted to share what she learned about Alzheimer's from her mother through her channeled messages after she passed away. Her mother's message to Cindy was, and is, so uplifting that she felt those in similar situations would feel and appreciate a huge release from the normal suffering brought on by the Alzheimer's condition. Her goal is to help others assess how best to care for a loved one with Alzheimer's and find joy in the experience.Review:
Cutting edge and controversial, this new book on Alzheimer's offers practical and comprehensive information for caring for the individual with Alzheimer's while offering messages from the author's mother after her death from Alzheimer's, as relayed through a medium. The messages suggest answers to the questions of why the condition exists, reasons for behaviors while in the condition and even implies that it is a chosen condition and joyful for those experiencing it. Even if you aren t one of the millions of people that believe in the ability to communicate with those beyond the grave, the messages are still quite revealing and provocative. The medical community and naysayers will have lots to think about, while millions will receive great benefit from reading the book. --Natural Awakenings Magazine April 2008
