INSIDE EDITION Investigates Clothing Donation Bins…

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is a rare, fatal brain disorder. The statistical incidence of CJD cases is one case, per million, per population. In the United States, this translates to approximately 250-300 new cases per year. Eighty-five percent of the cases are sporadic, meaning there is no known cause at present.
The Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Foundation consists of members who are concerned about the complexity of issues surrounding this fatal brain disease. Our mission is to support families and loved ones touched by CJD. The Foundation’s philosophy is to be proactive by establishing collaborations and linkages, communicating with family members, researchers, physicians and political representatives and informing the broader community about CJD.
The Foundation is increasingly called on to help more and more families which means our resources are constantly being stretched. We need your help to be able to continue to meet the needs of those affected by CJD. Your tax deductible gift will enable us to continue our work.
