The Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center offers support and information to caregivers of those suffering with Lewy Body Dementia. Through our online resource center, we connect those affected by LBD and foster a better understanding for the diagnosis, care, and treatment of the misunderstood disease.
This July 2019, we are gearing up to host a special, exclusive screening of Robin’s Wish. We believe it’s important to share this information with the LBD community to broaden understanding and increase attention toward the Lewy Body Dementia disease. Here’s what you should know about this event.
About Robin’s Wish
This timely documentary centers around the life of beloved comedian and actor, Robin Williams. It explores the untold love story of his marriage to Susan Schneider Williams, his tragic suicide, and his experience coping with his undiagnosed Lewy Body Dementia.
Pushing past the traditional boundaries of a biopic, this documentary looks deeper into Williams’ struggle in the later part of his life. Fans celebrate Williams as a comedic genius and remember him for giving the gift of laughter to the world. While this is a true and beautiful legacy, Robin’s Wish delves deeper into an equally important part of Williams’ life — his battle with an undiagnosed disease.
Robin’s Wish also destigmatizes mental symptoms of physiological and neurological diseases. The groundbreaking documentary inspires conversation about Lewy Body Dementia, furthering research that helps patients receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment.
When and Where
The exclusive private film screening and reception will be held at Lincoln Center in the Walter Reade Theater on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. The screening and cocktail reception will commence at 6:00 pm and conclude at 9:30 pm. Guests are invited to attend both events and listen to engaging presentations from Susan Schneider Williams, Director Tyler Norwood, and Dr. Susan Bressman.

The Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center was founded to ease the burden of caring for those suffering with LBD. It is our hope that through our actions, events, outreach, and donations, Lewy Body Dementia will be diagnosed sooner so that patients can receive the proper care and treatment they need to live quality lives.
