She played a pivotal role in LBDA’s launch of the national, grass roots LBD awareness movement in 2010.  In 2009, Coleen started the Allan D. Morrison 5K Run/Walk in Melrose, Mass., an annual race that raised over $75,000 dollars to support research and awareness of Lewy body dementia.

The host of the popular 9-year old program, Jacqueline Marcell, took care of her parents who had Alzheimer, compelling her to dedicate her life to eldercare awareness and reform. She is an international speaker and author of the best-selling book, “Elder Rage”. For more information, visit http://www.ElderRage.com.
