Brian's Run for CJD

Brian Flynn

THE STORY:

As many of you may know, my name is Brian Flynn and I am currently finishing up my last year of medical school with the intention of becoming a Neurologist.  One of my hobbies is running and I am planning to run the Boston Marathon in April 2016. I would like to run this marathon in support of a disease that my grandmother passed away from known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD).

CJD is a terrible disease where infectious, indestructible protein like particles known as prions attack the brain and rest of the central nervous system. It leads a rapidly fatal deterioration for the person afflicted with the disease and is gut-wrenching to watch as a family member.  It is stated that the disease is 1 in a million, but in my short medical career I have seen my grandmother and at least one or two other patients succumb to this disease.  Currently, there is no cure for CJD but a lot of research is being performed.

This is where my idea for a fundraiser comes in.  I would like to raise as much money as possible in support of CJD research.  I am not asking for a specific amount of money for a donation, just whatever you feel comfortable giving as every penny goes a long way in learning more about this disease.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I would be happy to answer them.  Thank you in advance for your support!
