Dear Friends and Family,


In May of 2016 my dad was diagnosed with sporadic CJD. Three weeks later, he passed away. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a fatal degenerative brain disease that causes holes in the brain and acts fast. It strikes one in one million people worldwide. Due to its rarity, there is a lack of funding and research to help  find a cure. My dream is to help find a cure in my lifetime so no family has to suffer this type of unfathomable loss. Please donate on my dad's behalf. Thank you!


With love,

Olivia Melamed
