We cherish the legacy of Co-Founder and Vice Chair Trish Vradenburg, who passed away earlier this month. UsAgainstAlzheimer’s was born out of Trish’s passion to fight back against Alzheimer’s disease, which her mother, Bea Lerner, succumbed to in 1992. Trish was a gifted and relentless advocate in the fight to stop Alzheimer’s and was instrumental in leading our enterprise on a path to make meaningful progress against a disease that caused her family so much pain.
Many have written about Trish’s incredible life. To pay tribute, a webpage has been created to share articles about Trish, allow visitors to write the family a letter, or provide information about how to honor Trish in the form of a donation. With her husband, George, we forge ahead in her memory.Remembering Trish
