Brad Sudol has another passion besides his career as a Philadelphia Master Electrician, which manifests itself in his work as an advocate for those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, which is the most common form of dementia. Millions of Americans have been stricken with Alzheimer's, which doesn't just impact the sufferer, but also their family, friends and other loved ones. the disease alters the lives of those it touches in many ways, and leaves families with many problems and expenses. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, which is something Brad Sudol desperately wants to change, but the search for a cure has led to many advanced treatments and therapies that were unheard of as recently as a decade ago.
Through his advocacy for the cause, Brad Sudol is trying to inform everyone in a way that makes them more aware of Alzheimer’s. The disease is largely associated with old age, in part because age is considered a risk factor and most who suffer from it are well over 65, but one out of every 20 Alzheimer's victims are hit with “early-onset” Alzheimer's, which can affect some when they are in their 50s, or even their 40s. Brad Sudol is hopeful there will be a cure within his lifetime, though, which would bring a lot of people hope.
