Capsules of Hope: Survival Guide for Caregivers is more than a memoir; it is the authors story of tenacity, thirty-one capsules filled with hope, survival tid-bits and twenty-two pages of resources. The book provides encouragement for caregivers and insights on how to handle every day decision making, how to talk to children about a parents illness, and where to turn when the medical world offers no hope. Kat addresses how changes happen that extend beyond the patient and caregiver, how a traumatic illness encompasses the extended family, co-workers and even the neighbors. The primary caregiver struggles to find quality, guilt-free, help. When faced with her husbands terminal illness, Kathy Crawford searched for that hope. In the process, she became "The Lionhearted Kat" and turned her endearing journey of pain and laughter into Capsules of Hope for other caregivers.
