Our Team Fundraising Page

Thank you for considering making a donation and taking the time to read about our beloved Mom and Gramma Dottie, who was magic in our lives.

We noticed in early 2015 that she wasn’t herself. She was having trouble doing basic daily tasks that she had done for years and becoming very forgetful. We reached out to doctors in two states looking for help. All they could do was help us make her as comfortable as possible; without proper funding there is no definitive diagnostic tool while the patient is alive, nor are there any treatment options. CJD progresses rapidly, depriving victims of appetite, movement, and memories.  

She was the master of homemade chicken soup - whether you were sick, or just hungry. She embodied all that was crafty, creative, tenacious, witty, and fun. After a rapid decline that flew by much too fast and at the same time stood absolutely still, our mother and grandmother went to be with the love of her life BP(Grampa Bruce).

Mom (Gramma Dottie) was taken too early from us all by CJD. We all greatly miss her and we are so thankful for your support to fund research towards finding a treatment/cure for this devastating disease.

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.
