Our Team Fundraising Page

Dear family and close friends, My mother was a selfless, loving, resilient, and get-it-done woman who dedicated her life to her family and loved ones. She was diagnosed in February 2020 with Creutzfeldt-Jakobs Disease (CJD). After an incredibly difficult time, she ultimately passed October 17, 2021. We appreciate the love, support, well wishes, check-ins, thoughts, and prayers that have come our way. The CJD Foundation really helped me and my family with understanding my mother's illness, exploring options on how to best provide for her care, helping manage both her physical and cognitive symptoms, and providing a monthly support group to help us get through this. The foundation also referred my mom to the National Prion Disease Pathology and Surveillance Center's CJD research program, where we have one-on-one access to its director, Dr. Brian Appleby, a nationally recognized specialist on the disease. It is for these reasons that I was inspired to participate in the CJD Foundation's Virtual Strides for CJD under my team Strides for Evelyn. Please show your support by making a donation of any size, in the effort to reach my personal fundraising goal. Proceeds raised will support medical education, family support, and research programs. Donations can be made through this form. If your employer matches donations, please consider requesting a match to complement your personal contribution and help our cause even more. If you are unable to donate, my mother I would still appreciate your prayers. Please also forward this email to anyone you think would be interested in helping this cause. Thank you so much for your thoughts and support . Theresa

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.
