Lewy body dementia is not a rare disease. It affects an estimated 1.3 million individuals and their families in the United States alone. Because LBD symptoms may closely resemble other more commonly known diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, it is currently widely under-diagnosed. LBD is an umbrella term for two related diagnoses. It refers to both ‘Parkinson’s disease dementia’ and ‘dementia with Lewy bodies.’ The earliest symptoms differ, but reflect the same underlying biological changes in the brain. Over time, people with both diagnoses will develop very similar cognitive, physical, sleep, and behavioral symptoms. Read more about LBD at Team Patrick promotes awareness of Lewy Body Dementia through participation in the Atlanta/Publix Marathon each March in Atlanta, GA, and at other events throughout the year. Our purple shirts, emblazoned with TEAM PATRICK and the LBDA logo, help to educate others about this devastating disease.
