September 11, 2023 - Boston, MA - Mark J. Resnick, Alan E. Rubel, and Michael D. Tenaglia, three dedicated caregivers from different corners of New England, are proud to announce the release of their touching and insightful book, The Greatest Burden The Greatest Blessing: caregiving stories of hope, humility, and love. The book encompasses the experiences of nearly 45 caregivers, providing a compassionate and inspiring perspective on dealing with a diverse range of conditions such as addiction, Alzheimer’s, autism, Down syndrome, cancer, mental health disorders, Parkinson’s, paralysis, and more.
According to recent statistics from the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, approximately 53 million Americans are providing unpaid care to family members or friends who are ill, disabled, or elderly. The Greatest Burden The Greatest Blessing sheds light on the challenges faced by these unsung heroes while highlighting the immeasurable impact of their dedication. The book is also a testament to the fact that while caregiving may be one of life’s greatest burdens, it’s also an extraordinary blessing that transforms both the giver and the receiver.
James H. Douglas, former governor of Vermont, describes the book as a moving portrayal of the complexities and joys of caregiving “The Greatest Blessing beautifully captures the full range of emotions, burdens, and yes, blessings of caregiving. Most importantly, it shows us what we’re capable of enduring in the name of love.”
Aron Lee Rolston, New York Times bestselling author of 127 Hours: Between a Rock and a Hard Place, commends the book for its poignant message, “These stories remind us that the love we share with our families is what gives us the strength, courage, and perseverance we need to grow from adversity, and even find gratitude form it.”
In her heartfelt Foreword, Rashida Ali Walsh encapsulates the essence of the book, “Sometimes it’s the care recipient, and sometimes it’s the care partner, but the amount of courage, compassion, hope, humility, kindness, and love demonstrated throughout the book is, quite simply, the greatest.”
The Greatest Burden, The Greatest Blessing invites readers to explore the intricate tapestry of caregiving experiences and to celebrate the triumphs, sorrows, and, above all, the love that defines these journeys. With its stories of hope, humility, and love, this book stands as a beacon of inspiration for caregivers and families everywhere.
