Starz' "Boss" Kelsey Grammer Public Service Initiative On Behalf Of The Lewy Body Dementia Association: PSA Campaign Anchors Organization's Effort to Raise Awareness about Degenerative Brain Disorder Affecting 1.3 Million Americans
Golden Globe® and Emmy® award winning actor Kelsey Grammer, star of the critically acclaimed STARZ Original series "Boss," recently completed two public service announcements for the Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA).

Grammer portrays fictional Chicago Mayor Tom Kane, who last season was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia (LBD), the second most common form of progressive dementia. More than 1.3 million Americans have been diagnosed with the disease, which affects almost everything about a person, including thinking, movement, and behavior. The disease also affects sleep and automated systems such as blood pressure and digestion; people with LBD can have severe medication sensitivities, especially certain tranquillizers.

Early diagnosis is critical and often involves a specialist, because some LBD symptoms resemble Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. People with LBD experience changes in memory or thinking that disrupt normal activities, plus varying combinations of other symptoms, such as slowness of movement, hallucinations, or disturbed sleep, such as physically acting out their dreams.

Please share on social media and pass on the Lewy body dementia message! #Lewybodydementia #BossTV #dementia #Parkinsons #Alzheimers
