About This Blog
Your writer, Pamela Lynne
In the Spring of 2004, I could never have imagined how much my life would change in just nine years. However that Summer my mother would receive a medical diagnosis that would change both of
our lives forever. I began sharing tidbits from my personal life on the previous version of this blog but after discussing my experiences with the National Family Caregivers Assoc., I knew that
someday I would what to write a book. When my mother passed away in 2012, I knew that the time to share our story is now.
Pam's Coffee Conversation is a blog/book/podcast project chronicling my journey as a family caregiver. In it, I candidly share my experiences as well as the lessons learned from over a
decade of caring for a parent who suffered from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) and COPD. Rather than taking the traditional book publishing route, I have opted to share my story in a
venue and format that allows me to interact with my readers, answer questions and offer encouragement. At this time, the project is not fully funded. Your contributions will support
the upkeep and maintenance of the website and finance the resources needed to complete this project. I hope that in the future, I will be able to provide thank you gifts to my supporters, at
present all that I can offer in return is my heartfelt gratitude.
Pam's Coffee Conversation is part of PamelaKemp LLC, a company that I formed in August of 2012 to utilize my prior career experience in customer service, public relations, marketing & management
to raise funds to support my work as well as donate to my favorite non-profit charities.
For now, neither NPH nor COPD are curable but they are often preventable and treatable. I use social media to share my personal experiences as a family caregiver; advocate on behalf of other family
caregivers; and raise awareness about the non-profit organizations that my retail business supports. It is my goal to not only share information on these health conditions but also do so in a way
that brings a little laughter and hope. I hope that you will enjoy this conversation and feel free to join in by leaving your comments. And no, I do not actually live in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada,
