Dana was the best human. She was a care taker, care giver and the most hilarious person. She was a friend to all and enemy to none. She raised a couple of great humans (Sydney & Austin) with her best friend and husband Matt for over 29 years. Her smile was infectous and grabbed you the minute you met her. She lived her life in grace and even took on this horrific disease in the same manner. CJD disease is very rare and called the "one in a million" disease, of which Dana was both rare and one in a million to all that had the pleasure of being in her inner circle. We look to help the CJD foundation in their research of a disease with no current treatment or cure. Although it's too late for our Dana we would like to save other families from the heartbreak we have lived through. We as Dana's fanclub ask that you help us with our mission.

About Strides for CJD

Strides for CJD is an annual walk/run to raise awareness of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a rare neurodegenerative disease that has no treatment or cure. Through this event, anyone -- anywhere -- can pay tribute to their loved ones and raise funds for the CJD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.

Funds raised support our programs including:

  • Our 24/7 helpline, support groups, conference, and other family programs throughout the year.
  • Research grants to help scientists make important discoveries and bring us closer to a cure.
  • Medical education to help raise awareness and understanding of prion disease.
