Written by Randall Lee, ‘Boomer’s Bust: A Solitary Journey through the World of Dementia’ is a gripping and enthralling fictional story of one man’s courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease. By taking readers deep into the protagonist’s thoughts, emotions, triumphs and defeats, the novel was written to become a rich source of solace for those faced with the disease.
Cottam, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2014 -- Every seventy seconds, a new case of Dementia is diagnosed in North America. With millions of ‘Baby Boomers’ expected to join the statistics, the world faces an upcoming epidemic that few are prepared for. While support for victims and families takes many forms, a compelling new book by Randall Lee is poised to use the power of love to provide vital support to those caring for a loved one or even facing the disease themselves.
‘Boomer’s Bust: A Solitary Journey through the World of Dementia’ is raw, frank and pulls no punches in its pursuit to portray the disease with the startling accuracy. While of course fiction, the narrative realistically exposes the reality that up to one in eleven seniors could eventually be forced to endure.
Boomer's Bust is a story of one man's courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease. Despite his steadfast determination to beat its debilitating effects, he slowly loses his grip on reality and enters a surreal and abstract world. The reader is taken for an enthralling journey through the inner passages of his troubled mind.
From the moment he is first diagnosed, his thoughts are led by his emotions. Intertwined between past and present, he continues to endure life with diminishing capacities through the power of faith and hope. Even as his confusion interferes with his ability to function properly. But he becomes lost in the shadows of heartbreak and depression.
Although a fictitious portrayal of one individual's struggles, reading Boomer's Bust can help those who are faced with dementia, be it relative, friend or even themselves. It will allow them to find some inner solace from the power of love that the story truly represents.
“This isn’t a sensational or fantastical story, but a grassroots portrayal of Dementia and its development in one man. It was written as a tangible resource for victims and families; a high-quality piece of writing that fuses fact and fiction to offer vital support to those who feel there is nowhere else to turn,” says Lee. “Throughout the narrative there are a number of revelations that that will provide at least some sense of hope and calm to those affected by the disease.”
Continuing, “Family members almost always report huge changes in those suffering from Dementia, but my book has a strong underlying message of love to prove that, while a victim may appear to be changing from the outside, their love can always cut through the stress and heartache until the very end. It’s important for caregivers and family members to recognize this, as the love will never die.”
