REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin and His Tribute to His Mother
REO Speedwagon’s frontman, Kevin Cronin, was impacted by LBD when his mom was diagnosed. After her passing, he is using his stardom to shine a spotlight on the disease while honoring his mom, who was affectionately referred to a “Rock Mother” by the band.
View his touching PSA and a performance of his mother’s favorite REO Speedwagon song, ‘Time for Me to Fly’.
Stories of Mom
Unfortunately, LBD has affected mothers across the U.S. and the globe. LBDA shares two stories from a mom’s perspective and a daughter’s perspective on the impact of LBD on their lives.
Lillian O’Connor shared her experience living with LBD. She is a mother and her diagnosis had quite an impact on her son, who insisted she seek a second opinion.
Bonnie Roache spoke with LBDA and shared her mother’s story in 2020. As the New Year was starting, her mother, Mary Alice, passed away. Bonnie shares the touching story of her mother.
