I wish I were a Leper is Vince O'Rourke's personal experience of the journey he and his wife Margaret took with Alzheimer's disease. Because of its early onset, the disease rapidly diminished Margaret's quality of life. When asked why she would ever wish to be a leper, Margaret's faith filled response was, "If I were a leper He could heal me".

The book is a record of unconditional love, pain and suffering, hope and despair, anger and elation, as well as of a personal conflict of faith, and belief in a God of love and compassion. It speaks clearly to all who care for those suffering long term terminal diseases, especially those allied to dementia.
