• It is with immense sadness that UsAgainstAlzheimer's announces Co-Founder and Vice Chair Trish Vradenburg's passing, and it is with the utmost gratitude that the organization cherishes her legacy and forges ahead in her powerful memory.

    UsAgainstAlzheimer’s was borne out of Trish's passion to fight back against Alzheimer’s disease, which her mother, Bea Lerner, succumbed to in 1992. Trish’s unique whimsical style was instrumental in leading the organization on a path to make meaningful progress against a disease that caused their family so much pain. She was a gifted and relentless advocate in the fight to stop Alzheimer’s.
