This page is dedicated to our great friend and sister Christine Cabaluna who lost her battle with Liver Cancer and to CJD; a rapid and horrible neurological disease. Because CJD is such a rare disease, people know little about it. There are currently no known treatments to slow down or reverse CJD’s aggressive neurological progression. So much more needs to be done to understand this terrible disease. Please take a moment to read about CJD and Liver Cancer and consider donating for a cure or purchase a Ribbon Mask to show Awareness for both Liver Cancer and CJD. All proceeds will be donated to Christine Cabaluna's Team Fundraising. More research needs to be done for treatment, and hopefully to one day find a cure.
WHAT IS CJD?
Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is a rare, fatal brain disorder within a group of illnesses called prion diseases. The incidence of CJD cases worldwide is one to two cases, per million individuals, per year. In the United States this statistic translates to nearly 500 new cases per year. There is one CJD death per every 6,000 to 10,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. Eighty-five percent of CJD cases are sporadic, meaning there is no known cause at present. There are three types of prion disease: n Sporadic (sCJD) n Genetic (also known as familial) n Acquired (variant CJD; vCJD and iatrogenic CJD; iCJD) In the early stages of the disease, CJD patients may exhibit failing memory, behavior changes, impaired coordination, and/or visual disturbances. As the illness progresses, mental deterioration becomes more pronounced, and involuntary movements, blindness, weakness of extremities, and, ultimately, coma may occur. CJD usually occurs later in life and typically leads to death within a few months to one year following the onset of symptoms. HELPLINE 1.800.659.1991
