Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefAn Interview with Naomi Judd

Gary Barg:   I’ve noticed over the past couple of years a marked increase in the amount of emails or calls we receive regarding hepatitis C.  Is hepatitis C really that prevalent in America?

Naomi Judd:   It will kill four times as many Americans as AIDS will over the next decade. I feel that whatever kind of ability God has given me, as an entertainer and as a public figure, it is so I can be a representative for others.

GB:   I think your book, Naomi’s Breakthrough Guide: 20 Choices to Transform Your Life, really speaks to the issue of how important it is for caregivers to take charge of their situation.  I agree with that wholeheartedly, and think we also become more aware of our own strength.

Ties That Bind Ad


Came across your Web site trying to organize my life and figure out what to do. Been caregiving since late 1980s. Wife got MS, then Dad got sick, then Mom got sick. Been caregiving so long, I can't believe it. I've had days when I felt my head will explode from the pressure.
Now I am in foreclosure. Losing our home. Had to file for bankruptcy. All senior residences in our area are booked. Wife is bedridden. Just looking for some good direction before we are pushed into the street.
