SUE'S STORY artfully documents the remarkable commitment of Sue and Chuck Berghoff to increase public awareness of Lewy Body Dementia. The filmmakers exercise sensitivity and respect in following Sue as she faces her dementia head-on and calls on others to join her in advocating for research to find a cure. Inspirational!

This documentary has much to teach us about the growing challenge of dementia in society. The filmmakers capture the essence of Sue Berghoff’s willingness to go public with her diagnosis of Lewy Body Dementia, and her husband's journey as her caregiver, so that others may benefit from their experience. The Berghoff team’s use of the film for social impact and engagement is a bold move that’s needed to bring about change. It opens the door for people to have meaningful conversations with those they care about most while they are still able to do so – creating an everlasting legacy.

This film deftly conveys Sue Berghoff's vision for a world free of dementia, in which people can live with purpose, dignity and hope in their later years. It connects us with the heart and soul of the more than nine million Americans living with dementia today.
