Story

Hi all,

Earlier this year we lost our lovely mummy, Joanna, to Sporadic CJD. A devastating disease that took mummy from us seven weeks after diagnoses. Sporadic CJD affects 1 in a million people.

The International CJD Awareness Day 2023 is on the 12th November, which is also the day of my 50th birthday. CJD Support Network UK are holding a meeting on that day in a restaurant called Di Bosco, well, Bosco is the name of my dog!!!!!! So, with those coincidences I thought it would be a great time to do a little bit of fundraising for The CJD Support Network.

Mummy and I had lots of plans for my big 50, which naturally involved a good old session. The birthday will not be the same without mummy but in her memory we can still have a little virtual session.

If you would like to buy me a virtual drink for my birthday then please donate whatever amount you would like. Every donation, no matter the size, is gratefully appreciated.

Thank you to all our family and friends for the continued support you have given to us all this year.
