Families need your help today.

LBD affects an estimated 1.4 million people living in the U.S. LBD is often misdiagnosed as a psychiatric disorder or another form of dementia. Most of these people have partners, family, friends and other loved ones whose lives are also impacted by this disease. You can help.

Ways you can help:

  • Support: Provide one-on-one or group support to those affected by LBD (Lewy Buddy, Support Group Facilitator, or Facebook Moderator)
  • Projects: Participate in project activities (participating in research studies, sharing your experience in a webinar, influencing legislation and policy)
  • Fundraise: Organize a fundraiser to support LBDA’s mission
