Suzanne Alexander


Suzanne Alexander co-founded the LiveLikeLou Foundation, along with her Phi Delt husband, Neil Alexander, who died from ALS in 2015.

During his journey with the disease, the couple started the grassroots effort to build awareness for ALS, raise funds to support ALS families, and fund ALS research to find a treatment or a cure. In just five years, they raised more than $4 million, founded the Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research at the University of Pittsburgh’s Brain Institute, and established as a leading entity in the fight against ALS in Western Pennsylvania.

Suzanne graduated from of San José State University and earned her MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.

Suzanne is a California native who now resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is a proud fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates and loves working with the members of Phi Delta Theta in their efforts to leave ALS better than we found it.

Suzanne and Neil’s two children,Abby and Patrick, live and study in Washington, DC, and she married David Sweitzer in 2020.
