My Story

About a month ago, Michelle started experiencing emotional and physical changes.  It has been determined that Michelle has Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease.  This is a degenerative brain disease for which there is no known cure.  An update will be made when any changes occur.
A fund has been set up to help Michelles family.  Checks should be made out to "Cody and Devins CJD Donations Benefit Acct" and mailed to:  The Bank of Elk River, Otsego Branch, 15800 88th St. N.E.  Elk River, Mn.  55330
