My Personal Fundraising Page
On September 11, 2021, my mother passed away from Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a rare progressive neurodegenerative disease that has no treatment or cure.
Strides for CJD is an annual walk/run to raise awareness and funds the CJD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, that provides family support, medical education and research programs
The CJD Foundation was an incredible resource during our time of grief and they are doing incredible work to try and find a cure.
My mom loved her family fiercely. She wanted to live but accepted her circumstance with grace and lived every final moment as best she could.
We miss her and we humbly ask for any donation. Please help find a cure for this devastating disease.
Thank you, Team Jean
