As a caregiver for more than 30 years, I understand the heartache and challenges caregivers face.
As a pianist for more than 45 years, I understand how to use music to communicate to and for a caregiver’s heart. –Peter Rosenberger
The number of caregivers of aging, disabled, or chronically-ill loved ones in America have soared past 65 million! Yet this vast group is often overlooked and the attention is directed to their charges.
Drawing upon 30 years of caring for my wife, Gracie,I wanted to express the heart of a caregiver in a song. We met at Belmont University a couple of years after the horrific 1983 car accident she endured as a freshman at the Nashville University. Friends told us about each other …and, while I did notice her limp and the scars, I saw an extraordinary beauty and courage to this exceptional woman.
After a lifetime of caregiving through a medical nightmare that mushroomed to more than 75 operations, the amputation of both legs in the 1990’s, treatment by more than 75 doctors in 12 different hospitals, and medical bills that have crested $10 million, I understand the heart of a caregiver …and I understand the heartache of a caregiver.
For many years, I’ve wanted to make this CD. Many don’t know, but a few years ago …we nearly lost Gracie. I am so grateful that she is regaining strength and could lend her amazing voice to this project.
This CD was specifically designed for caregivers. The flow, song selection, style …it all is intended to comfort, strengthen, encourage, and minister to caregivers.
For your gift of $25 or more to Standing With Hope, we will send you this CD.
