Hello Lewy Warriors!
We hope you had a wonderful February! We're here to fill you in on what we've got coming this Spring and everything that has happened in our world this past month. Much like January, February was another quiet month for everyone at CLBDI but, as always, we have been busy planning for the future. You can expect tons of content and events coming your way as the weather gets warmer.
First and foremost, we passed the second anniversary of Bob's passing earlier this month and saw the release of a wonderful article by Valarie Hill on Bob's life and journey with LBD in the local newspaper, The Record. If you missed it earlier this month, you can read the article by clicking this link:
We also had our first ever financial report with our Advisory Board and brainstormed with them on some of our plans for the coming year. We wanted to thank them again for lending their advice and support to everything we do here at CLBDI. We've also decided not to run a Spring Fundraiser this year and focus on our next online (and possibly in-person) art show. We're happy to announce that the show will be coming in late June and that we are bringing Carol and at least 4 other artists together to raise money for Dr. Pasternak's LBD research. We're hoping that if the pandemic situation becomes more agreeable, we will be able to show this one in person too. Either way, it's going to be so much fun.
We have also been busy connecting with other Lewy Body Dementia organizations across the globe and building relationships in an effort to better connect everyone with the information they need and share that information/content more freely. This includes being featured on the "Forward With Dementia" site, getting in contact with the "Purple Sherpa" team, and so much more. As time goes on, we hope to continue to build an LBD network both locally and abroad. One of our goals has always been to make things easier for anyone who wants to learn more about this disease or connect with the many great LBD communities online.
As always, we continue to update our Resources page with new books, content, links and more. Be sure to check it out as it is an ever-growing archive of Lewy Body Dementia information.
And lastly, we still have a few more shirts available to order. This is a one-time printing so if you like the design, now is that time to get yours! For more information and to place an order before we run out, visit the "Community" page of our website. If this design isn't for you, we are still planning on doing another run of merchandise this summer, although it may be a different type of merchandise altogether next time around! Keep your eyes peeled for more information.
Thank you all for your support.
The CLBDI blog is run by Advisory Board member Joseph Daniel.
