Jody has been extremely brave while dealing with this ordeal. She has been more concerned with her family, and how this is affecting them, then her own well being. One of the more remarkable things she is planning on doing is donating her brain tissue to the University of Alberta’s Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease research facility. This means that when they do find a cure she will be part of that legacy that will save future lives.
Our main goals are to prolong the quality of her life by trying some alternative therapies and/or natural medications that may help slow down the degeneration of the neurons in her brain and help to alleviate her symptoms as there is currently no treatment protocol for this disease. We would also like to surround her with as much of her family as possible at all times to keep her happy and stress free. Jody’s continued happiness is helping everyone close to her through this extremely difficult time.
Any additional funds raised will be donated by the family to the university of Alberta’s CJD research program.
