WASHINGTONVILLE, N.Y., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Motivated to write a book to help and comfort the over 5 million Americans currently living with Alzheimer's disease and the loved ones who care for them, author Marilynn Garzione is proud to announce the release of her book, "Released to the Angels: Discovering the Hidden Gifts of Alzheimer's" (published by iUniverse).

"Released to the Angels" is an Editor's Choice award winner and recognized as a must-read by the Alzheimer's Association Hudson Valley/Rockland/Westchester, New York Chapter.
