This is just brilliant and comes from a lady who is a clinician and also a prion disease researcher and plays the fiddler like you would not believe. Dr. Valerie Sim is also a member of the Friends and Advisors Group of the CJD International Support Alliance and Medical Director of the Canadian CJD Association so is dedicated to assisting patient associations and CJD patients and families. This is the calibre of researchers we are so lucky to know are working hard to find a treatment or cure for this devastating disease called CJD or prion disease.
Congratulations to the prize recipients of the CJD Raffle held in Loving Memory of Mario Papalia.
- 1st Prize- Julie Mortimer, West Perth
- 2nd Prize- Stewart Title, Victoria Park
- 3rd Prize- Joe Versaci, Osborne Park
We would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to our family and friends for their continued support and generosity as we strive to find a cure for this disease.
The raffle raised $14,950.00 which is evidence that Mario’s generous spirit now lives on in all of those that had the privilege of knowing him.
Thank you to the sponsors that donated amazing prizes and a big thank you to Poppy’s Crusade and the Farlekas family for their assistance with making this raffle the success that it was.
Marie Papalia and family.
