Thursday – A Little Personal – #RRBC Spotlight Honors Interview with Lynn Miclea

Spotlight Honors

Today I am interviewing  Lynn Miclea author of the book “Ruthie: A Family’s Struggle with ALS.” This book is a memoir written by Lynn in the hopes of helping other caregivers cope with the awesome responsibility and stress of caring for loved ones. The show is live beginning at 11:00 Central Time and here is a direct link.   If you miss the live show, an archived version will be available at this link after the show is over.


Here is the blurb for Lynn’s book.

A powerful and compassionate memoir about an intelligent and beautiful woman’s experience with ALS. Dramatic and heart-wrenching, the story takes the reader through various symptoms, multiple diagnoses, and progression of the disease, as the author’s mother loses her strength, independence, and ability to speak and eat. The story includes volatile family interactions as one person who is in denial attempts to block the woman from getting the help she desperately needs. This is a personal view of this difficult illness, and the story brings you right into their lives and hearts. This book is ultimately inspirational, as it offers many insights and practical suggestions for helping someone with a terminal disease. This would greatly benefit anyone dealing with any type of progressive illness.

  4. I’m certain it will be an inspirational show, much like Lynn’s book sounds to be. Having acted as a caregiver to a family member for a number of years (although not to someone with ALS or a terminal illness) I know how difficult that roll can be.

    Wishing you both a fabulous show!

  5. Wonderful! What an inspirational lady. Thanks for sharing, John.

  6. I was out of pocket for the live show and have tried three times to listen to the archive but Blog Talk Radio seems to be having issues. I’ll keep trying. I know this was a great show and I will listen!

    1. None of the archives is working. I don’t know what is going on.
