Story

Diana Camidge sadly died in September 2016, aged 46, from an extremely rare prion disease called GSS or Gerstmann–Sträussler–Scheinker (similar to CJD) for which there is currently no cure. 

However there is real hope for the future -  the National Prion Unit
(NPU) have created a drug which could potentially treat this illness.
Once CJD is cured, GSS is cured!

All the NPU need is financial help to continue trials so that this drug therapy can be developed safely and effectively.

The Foundation Diana’s family and friends have set up The Diana Camidge Foundation in her memory with the prime objective of raising lots of funds for the NPU, which are donated to their charitable arm  The Cure CJD Campaign.

On the tide 20-28th June 2018 I hope to successfully swim the English Channel for this great cause.
