Join us to defeat
Lewy Body Dementia
When Sue Berghoff was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, her life was turned upside down. The disease invaded her brain, stealing her ability to make conversation, schedule appointments, shop for groceries, or drive a car. Rather than be defeated by LBD, Sue became a powerful advocate for change, and The Sue's Story Project was born.
“When I found out I had Lewy Body Dementia, I decided to make something positive from my diagnosis by sharing my story. We need to shed light on dementia and remove its stigma. We’re not doing enough. Research is desperately needed if we’re going to find a cure.”
– Sue Berghoff, Co-founder, The Sue's Story Project –
