Help us finish the "Facing the Wind" documentary

Tax deductible
(NOTE: Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center will receive donations on behalf of the film, entitling donors to a tax deduction.)

Facing the Wind is a love story about people with Lewy body dementia, the spouses who care for them, and the remarkable community where they find sustenance and support.

The film is shot and in post-production, but we need $31,000 to continue editing and reach a rough-cut stage by the end of the summer. With a rough cut, we can engage potential co-production partners and broadcast outlets this fall and release the film in early 2024.
Please donate whatever you can to support this important effort.

Lewy body dementia (LBD) affects 1.4 million Americans but is largely unknown and often misdiagnosed. Facing the Wind will put Lewy body dementia into the public spotlight, building pressure for better diagnosis and treatment

Over 11 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with various dementias. Facing the Wind will amplify a growing movement to provide comprehensive support for family caregivers.
