In loving memory of Trish Kershaw

Trish Kershaw bravely ended her brief battle with CJD on 16 February 2020, at just 64.

Trish was known for her incredibly bright mind, generosity for others and an infectious smile. Trish was the adored wife of Grahame, supportive and loving mother to Helen and mother-in-law to David, and was well loved by many friends and clients.

The CJD Support Group Network provided invaluable support for our family during the most difficult time of our lives.

We are seeking support from friends and family in Trish’s memory for the CJD Support Group Network, to assist with funding research into the disease. We hope that someday, there will be treatment, prevention and a cure so that no one else has to endure the effects of CJD.

Any contribution you feel able to make will be greatly appreciated.
