Cure CJD

Heather Larson's experiences in helping find the cure for CJD

Hopes for 2009

Just wanted to make a quick list of things I hope to happen in 2009. Of course, if they happened at all in any year and I’m alive to see it, I’d be pretty happy!  

  1. Tom Vilsack makes it mandatory to test every cow meant for human consumption for BSE once he becomes agriculture secretary. 
  2. As always, better support for CJD families going through losing a loved one to this disease. 
  3. I want to make it to this year’s CJD Convention in Washington D.C. to meet all of you, chat with the world’s top scientists, and have my day at Congress to represent Arizona.  
  4. I’d like to speak at Barrow Neurological Institute again, or any hospital for that matter.  It’s always productive to meet with neurologists on the front lines. 
  5. I just want to continue blogging and networking online with other CJD families as I keep moving forward to solutions to suffering and the ultimate cure that I know exists.
