Feeling Grateful on Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving I am truly focused not only being thankful and grateful for my wonderful family and friends but all the amazing people that visit and support all of Alzheimer’s Speaks platforms. Your comments, likes and shares continue to expand our reach and help us shift dementia care from crisis to comfort around the world.

My sincere gratitude goes out to all the people I have been lucky enough to interview over the years. Each person sharing their authentic voice how dementia and/or caregiving has impacted their life. Each giving us tips and resources to help us all live graciously together.

To all the organizations who have hired me to do keynotes, training and/or consulting for staff, families, management and communities.

I pray that each of you have an amazing day that carries over for the remainder of the holiday season and into the new year.

For those missing loved ones that have passed, like I am, I hope you find a calmness knowing none of us can feel great loss without first having great love. May that knowledge bring you a peacefulness and calmness to you.

Please know you have and will always continue to matter to us here at Alzheimer’s Speaks. Sending love and blessing to each and everyone of you.

In Honor of Susan Suchan

One voice that has been significantly missed this past year is Susan Suchan.  She lived her life fully even when diagnosed with dementia. We continue to celebrate her birthday and the love, compassion and dear friendship she brought into our lives.

Through Death,

Our Connection Remains

It was an honor to work with Susan on Dementia Chats.  Her insights were brilliant and her laughter contagious.

A few of us gathered to honor what would have been Susan’s 62nd birthday.  Please watch and feel free to share Susan’s life and the impact she had on others.  Remember each one of us have the opportunity to lift and inspire others by sharing our authentic self with one another, just as Susan did.

You never knew what would happen next….

A Bit More About Susan

Susan Suchan was the mother of two grown daughters and five beautiful grandchildren. She was a nurse for 23 years and was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (EOAD) at the age of 48; an additional diagnosis of Frontotemporal dementia(FTD)/Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA). Susan advocated for and about the “lived experience”, working to change perceptions, stigma and help bring to life, and the realness of her disease process. She has had the opportunity to speak Nationally and locally. Susan was awaiting the release of a documentary featuring her life, showing the effects on friends and family relationships, finances and end of life discussions. The film is called, “Susan’s Story” and is still in need of funds to complete.

Here Are Some of Our Dementia Chats Sessions Featuring Susan

Help Make “Susan’s Story” a Documentary, a Reality 

In honor of what would have been Susan Suchan’s 62nd birthday, her family and the producers of the documentary, invite you to help complete the film.  The documentary is in post-production and the final $125,000 is still needed to complete the film. 

Please contact Russ Kirkpatrick, the Producer/Director of the film, if you have questions or would like to make a contribution. Tax deductible contributions can be made to one of two 501(c)(3) organizations associated with the film.
