In memory of Jenny Duckworth

After raising over $40,000 for CJD research since 2017, the Duckworth family is hoping to reach $50,000 in donations to fund local researchers in Australia.

In 2020, the Duckworth family decided to raise funds by making and selling reusable face masks.
They have raised over $10,000 already!

If you would like to purchase a face mask, please contact Brigette via email:

CJD is a rare, degenerative and fatal brain disease, that affects 2 in a million people every year.

Due to the rarity and aggressive nature of this disease, funding for research is sadly limited to donations.

Since losing mum Jenny Duckworth to CJD in 2016, her children have inspired a vision that no other family will have to go through what they did.
