National speaker and author of Finding Hope for Your Journey through Breast Cancer, Yvonne Ortega will interview Karen Boerger and Annetta Dellinger. Karen and Annetta are nationally known for their encouragement to caregivers. There are more than 65 million family caregivers caring for a family member or friend today. In 30 years, the number of people needing care is expected to double. We are a nation in crisis, and we haven't even recognized it yet. Karen Boerger and Annetta Dellinger have been caregivers more than 8 times. The exhaustion, frustration and feelings of being overwhelmed can engulf the caregiver to the point where the caregiver has difficulty handling the challenging tasks at hand. Annetta and Karen have published two books, Joy-spirations for Caregivers and Blessings and Prayers for Caregivers. These books provide support and encouragement for the emotional health of the caregiver. Annetta and Karen speak around the country to bring awareness of the emotional needs of caregivers. They will be speaking on a chartered Royal Caribbean cruise ship in February 2011—Buckeye Cruise for Cancer.
