Davey L. Kock died of CJD on September 25, 2012, four months after his first symptoms appeared and just 12 days after his diagnosis. He was a wonderful son, husband, dad, coach, cattleman, businessman, and friend. Since that time, his family and friends have raised well over $100,000 for research, awareness and support programs through the CJD Foundation and the National Prion Disease Pathological Surveillance Center.
After completing fundraising for a $10,000 research grant once again in 2021, our goal is in 2022 is once again to reach the $10,000 mark. Please consider donating through this page to add to our next grant. Since our family became involved in the CJD Foundation in 2013, research has come so far, and the researchers are now working toward actual treatments which can help others avoid the experience which our family has endured.
