Cure CJD

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

Please Support Eric Bjorklund

Eric Bjorklund is a 40 year old man “likely to be suffering from a rare genetic disease called Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD)” according to a website set up by mothers of autistic kids he’s worked with as an ABA therapist. There’s a fundraiser for Eric and his family this Sunday, June 14 in Hauppauge, NY. If you’re anywhere near there, please attend and help out.

I am floored to see someone at age 40 dying of (suspected) CJD. This is beyond wrong. And I thought age 56 was young for my mother and uncle to die of it…

  1. Hi. My mother died on 1st October this year (2012) from suspected CJD, she was 52. We now wait for confirmation and then we wait again to see what strain it is, inherited or sporadic. This disease is horrible and I had heard of it, but really didn’t affect me until my mother’s doctors uttered those 3 letters…then I was floored. Good luck Heather with finding a cure. I really hope that we can unravel this horrendous disease and stop it in it’s tracks.

  2. I am sorry to hear about your mom. My prayers to you and your family. Tell others if you can in order to raise awareness.

    UCSF is always a good place to donate money to so that it goes to research and finding a cure:
