Lisa Jones - Alzheimer's battle

Our great friend, Lisa Jones Foose, has recently been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. 

Lisa is 49 years old. Lisa and her husband of almost 20 years Dave are dedicated and loving parents to their 3 wonderful, smart, athletic children, Zoe and Rowan, 14 and Landon, 10. They live in Arlington Virginia with their extended family of loving dogs and cats. 

As many of you know, Lisa spent most of her successful legal career (after she graduated Vanderbilt University in 1990 and University of Virginia Law School in 1993) in The United States Department of Justice.  With over 20 years service at the DOJ, she rose through the ranks and only recently completed her service after the election of the new administration.  

With her successful career at the Department of Justice, Lisa was the primary "bread winner" and Dave assumed primary duty at home with the three children.  

Unfortunately, Lisa is no longer able to work due to her Alzheimer's symptoms.  Unfortunately, early onset Alzheimer's disease can make usual life tasks much harder to complete and Lisa, Dave and her family need our help.

The Foose family needs our financial support with the basics; food, medical & household bills and we would also like to build a fund to help with future home help needs as the disease progesses. Dave Foose is currently taking the lead with the three children, working part-time and also is the primary help for Lisa. 

Please consider helping us help Lisa and her family with a donation.

Thank you,

Lisa's Vanderbilt friends
