Today is International CJD Day. And here is the message I received from the CJD Foundation.

“Tomorrow, November 12th, is International CJD Day. As we have said many times, although none of us needs a special day to remember our loved ones lost to this terrible category of diseases, we know that as a global community there is power in stopping to acknowledge every loss on a single day.

The CJD Foundation has pledged to continue to focus our resources on providing support and guidance to anyone who reaches out to us, to offer research grants and to continue to promote our medical and funeral education programs.

No matter how you choose to honor this day we ask that you please include the memories of all those who have succumbed to prion diseases in years past and sadly, those yet to come.

Thank you all for your amazing spirit and resilience

The CJD Foundation”
