ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Feb. 16, 2024 - PRLog -- The Commodity of Time: A Heartfelt Caregiver's Unexpected Journey with Her Mother Through Illness, Cancer and Everything In Between (December 20, 2023) released by Lizann Grupalo offers inspiration and a call to action for caregivers, patients and anyone navigating illness beyond their comprehension. This memoir provides them with the strength and resolve to discover answers to medical questions, alleviate some anxiety, provide a few laughs, and help guide them to find the right balance and plan of action for their roadmap through illness. It opens their eyes, gets them thinking to identify alternative and additional options to manage the journey spiritually, physically and mentally, and provide them with the courage to ask the tough questions surrounding proper health care while recognizing the importance and impact that spirituality and family can have on the healing process. This book was written to motivate them to take control and live life on their terms, as a caregiver, as a daughter, and as a patient.

"This book is in honor of anyone battling illness and to the caregivers who selflessly give of themselves to provide care, comfort, support, love and understanding. Know that you are the angels on the ground making a difference in every life you care for," says Grupalo.

The Commodity of Time is an emotional and inspiring memoir that takes us through Dolly Grupalo's heart-wrenching battle against cancer and her daughter's journey as her caregiver throughout this unforgiving struggle.

As cancer threatens Dolly's life, Lizann becomes her unwavering anchor in a storm of uncertainty. Through the rollercoaster of treatments, the despair of setbacks from surgery and ICU to issues with medications, and the small victories, Dolly and Lizann's relationship as mother and daughter deepens in ways they could never have imagined. Together, they navigate the maze of medical jargon, grapple with fear, and find solace in each other's presence while enjoying activities such as high school basketball games and crashing weddings!

The Commodity of Time is a testament to the strength of Dolly and Lizann's mother-daughter connection, showcasing their steadfast determination to fight against and beat the odds.

"It is possible for a mother-daughter relationship to become stronger when illness and cancer descends. Although becoming the caregiver of my mother was one of the hardest and scariest things I have experienced, it proved that together, we can weather the storms, fight the hard battles, celebrate the little wins, and do so with dignity, grace, and a little laughter along the way," says Grupalo.
