HONOKAA, Hawaii, July 21, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Within the pages of Alan Suzuki's new book, He Almost Named Me Buckaroo Banzai: Memoirs of a Caregiver ($20.49, paperback, 9781545640722; $9.99, e-book, 9781545640739), readers will find the author's story of how he became the family caregiver when his father was suddenly stricken with what would ultimately be terminal pulmonary fibrosis. Detailed in this book are the most significant events/experiences of this chapter of his life.

"Nearly everybody knows someone that has taken on the role of family caregiver, or perhaps they are/have been one themselves," said Suzuki. "Readers who are/have been family caregivers can relate to my experiences, while readers who are not can gain insight."

At a time when it appears as though traditional family values and fatherhood/masculinity are becoming demonized, Suzuki feels it is important to reaffirm the value fatherhood and masculinity bring to society.

Also included within this memoir are the Suzuki family's frustrations with the Veterans Health Administration.

Alan Kenji Suzuki was born in Santa Ana, California and raised on the outskirts of Honoka'a, a town on the Big Island of Hawai'i. He holds a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Kinesiology from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.
