Story Summary

Rosetta Marsch is a full-time working mother of two and caregiver to her ailing parents. Rosetta's life is challenged by an effort to cope with the responsibilities of her eight-year-old daughter's newly diagnosed Tourette's Syndrome, her mother's diabetes and her father's developing dementia. "They call me the sandwich generation. But if I wasn't busy, I would be bored," says Rosetta. With strength and positivity, Rosetta sacrifices her time and energy to ensure that the health of her loved ones remains stable.
