Running for my Grandma, Mary A. Meade

NYC Marathon 2018

My Grandma lived her life with passion, kindness, and love.  In July of 2017, my grandma was diagnosed with CJD. Everyday I watch as my grandma slowly fades away.  It is heart wrenching for me to see my grandma this way.  Currently there is nothing to do to stop this disease from progressing.  I hope with the money I raise, further research will be conducted to better understand this disease so other families will not have to lose their loved ones like I will.  With great appreciation for your kindness and generosity.
