Fundraising for the CJD Foundation

The Cornacchioli Family

In Memory of Ginny Cornacchioli


Since 1st grade Ginny knew she wanted to be a nurse to pursue a career of helping others. At the age of 60 she was diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease commonly called CJD.

CJD affects only 0.0000010746% of the United State’s population each year. This is a rare, rapidly progressive neurodegenerative fatal disease. Currently there is no treatment or cure.

Donations to the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Foundation funds research of CJD. With your help, Ginny's legacy of helping others will continue. Hopefully one day leading to a cure for this horrible disease.
