Our Team Fundraising Page
In October of 2018, my husband Brian was displaying abnormal behavior. Memory loss, trouble speaking and walking. After many exams and tests, we were told that he had Creutzfeld Jakob's Disease. A rare progressive degenerative brain disorder that has no cure or even treatment for. It is a fatal disease. Needless to say, we were devastated. Everything was done to make him comfortable but ultimately he passed away on November 15th.
This disease is brutal. It strips the afflicted of their ability to walk, talk and most importantly their dignity. The symptoms can progress quickly as was in Brian's case or they can linger for months even years causing pain and agony to not only the afflicted but to their families. To this day, there is still no cure or treatment.
Please consider donating to this cause to fund research for finding a cure for so that no one else has to suffer from this ghastly disease.
