In Mark’s memory, we would love to help raise funds to assist in the research of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. As is the way with this rare disease, it hit fast. In the space of 6 weeks he went from the fighting fit, cheeky, 70 year old we all knew and loved to passing. There is no cure and an earlier detection for him and his family would have made it easier to process his last few weeks. Due to its rarity, Mark was on the tail end of the disease until it was deemed the likely cause of his decline.

We would like other families to be able to find out earlier and your donations will help.


The CJDSGN guarantees that every cent received will go directly to support the CJD Research Teams in Australia, improvements in diagnostic tools or the work of the CJDSGN in supporting families affected by CJD. Mark’s family will be notified of your donation and consulted on the allocation of funding.

The CJDSGN is a registered charity and will provide you with a tax deductible receipt. We use PayPal’s secure checkout to process our donations. *Please allow or select to return to the CJDSGN website from Paypal to ensure your donation is processed.*
